From The Desk Of:

Michelle Sorsen, CEO

May is National Walking Month.

Health and Exercise! Something that most people don’t want to visit about. Are you struggling? I know I am. Every day I have these great intentions of just 20 minutes today. Then, guess what? I hit the recliner and fall asleep because of stress and exhaustion. I always know that just a short walk will help change my health for the better. I have a challenge for our team. Let’s start a log personally on how far we have walked in the month of May. Let’s work together and make changes that will benefit ourselves and our families.

What are the benefits of walking, you ask and why should I do it? I will list the benefits but personally, you have to ask yourself after reading the list how will this benefit me?

  1. Improve your mood
  2. Burn calories and maintain a healthy weight
  3. Reduce your risk of chronic diseases
  4. Live longer
  5. Boost your brainpower
  6. Alleviate joint pain
  7. Delay the onset of varicose veins
  8. Stimulate your digestive system
  9. Enhance creativity
  10. Improve your sleep

Let’s challenge each other and treat our bodies right by walking every day.

Set up daily goals and reminders, and don’t forget to listen to music when you walk!
