Walk at Work April 25 to Live Longer, AHA Urges

Start! Walking At Work Day is April 25, the American Heart Association notes, calling it "a simple, powerful way to pledge to make your heart health a top priority and also a symbol of your support for the Start! movement.

AHA hopes thousands of Americans nationwide will participate. "This is the day that adults nationwide can make the pledge to Start! walking and to become active and heart-healthy, especially in the workplace," the organization says in its Web site announcement.

Adult Americans spend more time at work than ever before with little time spent being active, according to AHA. State! Walking At Work day was created to remind you to take just 10 minutes three times a day to walk because it will help you live longer. "In fact, studies show that just one hour of vigorous exercise will increase your life expectancy by two hours. It makes sense to Walk More and Eat Well to Live Longer," says AHA. It urges participants to wear sneakers at work April 25 to show support and also to change an April 25 meeting to a walking meeting "and let your colleagues know why."
