Wellness Challenge - Work Up To Being Active For At Least 15 to 30 Minutes Every Day



For the upcoming weekly challenge, we are challenging the participants to "work up to being active for at least 15 to 30 minutes each day."Less than 5% of adults participate in 30 minutes of physical activity each day; only one in three adults receive the recommended amount of physical activity each week. Regular exercise or physical activity helps many of the body’s systems function better, keeps heart disease, diabetes, and a host of other diseases at bay, and is a key ingredient for losing weight.  If you are interested in learning more and participating, click here.
