Walking to Wellness

Walking is a great way to introduce physical activity into your daily life*. For those who are already active, taking a walk break during the day helps mitigate the risks of prolonged sitting as well as helps with focus and productivity. Regardless of your goal, Health Promotion and Wellness has numerous tools available to help you make walking a daily activity.
