WKEF-TV ABC 22 News :: News - Good Morning - Lace Up Your Sneakers & Take a Walk!

Lace Up Your Sneakers & Take a Walk!

Today is National Walking Day and the Miami Valley Division of the American Heart Association is inviting you to walk for at least 30-minutes today.

There will be a free event  at the Dayton VA Medical Center Campus, 4100 West Third Street, Dayton, Ohio, 45428 from 11 am – 1 pm. It will feature a health and wellness fair and also include a 1 mile walk around the campus.  The event is sponsored locally by Booz/Allen/Hamilton.

Americans are spending more time than ever sitting in front of screens – at work and at home.  And that physical inactivity has a detrimental effect on your health. Studies have shown that inactive people can double their risk of heart disease.

 The American Heart Association recommends at least 150 minutes of physical activity weekly for adults, and 60 minutes a day for kids.

And if you have any doubts, here are some more benefits ofexercise:
•Research has shown that each hour of regular exercise can add about two hours to your life expectancy, even if you don't start until middle age.
•Regular physical activity can relieve tension, anxiety, depression and anger.
•Exercise increases the flow of oxygen, which directly affects the brain. Your mental awareness and memory can be improved with physical activity.
•Becoming more active can lower your blood pressure by about as much as some high-blood pressure medications.

Sign up to participate in National Walking Day (as an individual, school, community organization or company) at heart.org/NationalWalkingDay. Wear red shoelaces on National Walking Day (and whenever you exercise) to remind yourself of the benefits of exercise. Show how you are “lacing up” for your heart and brain health by posting a picture of your red laces in action with the hashtag #AHALaceup to your social media accounts.Lace Up Your Sneakers & Take a Walk!
