Celebrate National Walking Day at work on April 3 - KMSP-TV

Bring your sneakers to work April 3 and celebrate National Walking Day

Posted: Updated:
(WJBK) -

It's called by many the most perfect exercise that anyone can do: walking.

If you need a little jump start to begin your walking program, here it is. Next week the American Heart Association celebrates National Walking Day. This means bring your sneakers to work on April 3 and plan to walk for 10, 20 or 30 minutes.

Remember this, if you're struggling to find time to walk during your work day, poor diet and lack of exercise are responsible for at least 25 percent of working adults' healthcare costs.

On Monday, Beaumont's Dr. Barry Franklin stopped by FOX 2 to talk about the added benefits of walking and his book, co-authored with Robert Sweetgall, 'One Heart, Two Feet.' Click here to learn more about walking workshops presented by Sweetgall.

    It is time to start thinking about sending young adults off to college, and while dorm rooms and apartments are often small, they can still have style.

    It's not just the styles that have changed with weddings over the years -- it's also the technology. Disposable cameras used to be the norm, but now there's an even simpler way for the bride and groom to get some candid photos of their special day.
