The first Wednesday in April is National Walking Day.

Here are some great ways to make a 30-minute or more walk more enjoyable:

  • Make sure to stretch your muscles.
  • Make sure you have good posture.
  • Drink plenty of water.
  • Move your arms while walking, too.
  • Wear comfortable clothes and shoes.

Places to walk include a park, your neighborhood, hiking trails, a school or public track.

The American Heart Association sponsors this day to remind people about the health benefits of taking a walk. For more information, visit
