Physician Wellness Tip: One Step at a Time

Walking helps you stay fit and healthy. Being active even lowers your risk for serious health problems, like heart disease, stroke, Type 2 diabetes, depression and some cancers. Check out this white board video by Mike Evans, MD.

More than half of American adults don't get enough physical activity. What is enough? Adults need at least 2.5 hours—and children about an hour—of "moderately intense" aerobic activity each week for better health. This can include walking briskly, dancing, gardening and biking. A good test to see if your workout is making an impact is whether you can talk, but not sing, as you're doing it.

Besides the numerous fitness center discounts available to you, the next time you are on campus try taking the stairs instead of the elevator. Not only might you find it faster, but you will discover hand-painted murals and quotes to inspire your day.
