National Women’s Health & Fitness Day is on September 26th! Prepare to celebrate on Monday by spending time with the women in your life and doing a Monday Mile to get moving and be healthy.
Activate your fitness routine with 2,000 steps! A Monday Mile is an easy one-mile walk with a boundless list of health benefits. To do a Monday Mile, map out a route from your front door, a park, a walkway, or a nature trail and do a one-mile brisk walk. It’s also an easy goal to achieve if you’re just getting started with a fitness routine.
Besides getting your heart rate up, brisk walking has real benefits for women, whose greatest health risk is cardiovascular disease. Walking regularly can reduce your risk for several conditions, such as heart disease and stroke, in addition to other diseases that affect women, such as osteoporosis and breast and colon cancer. Plus, it’s great for your mood, digestion, blood sugar, and it helps you sleep.
By starting a new routine on Monday, you are more likely to keep it up all week. Call the women in your life and plan to do a Monday Mile together!
