To help promote exercise and walking in the workplace, this month’s WOW’s will focus on how to make the most out of your walks. Walking is a great form of exercise and can be done anywhere, anytime without the need of equipment or a gym membership. Walking has shown to increase physical fitness while simultaneously decreasing stress. Best of all, you can enjoy this beautiful fall weather and watch the leaves change color on your walking breaks!
Have you ever tried adding a lunge into your walks? If you haven’t, today is the day! Start off with taking a big step forward and keep your front foot flat on the ground and your back foot on your toes. Bend your knees and keep them at 90 degrees while keeping your spine upright. Step your feet together and switch to the other side. The additional lunges will build your lower body strength and improve your balance and stability.
