Wellness Tip:

Spring Walking!

With warmer weather approaching, resume your lunch time walks this spring. Go with a group of co-workers or enjoy a relaxing walk by yourself. The mid-day exercise not only helps you reach your goal of 30 minutes of physical activity every day, but it can also help you de-stress during a hectic work week.
