Have you heard of the nationally-trending ‘park prescription’ programs?
Doctors are prescribing a dose of nature and a walk in the park to better one’s health. Walking can help maintain a healthy weight, strengthen your bones and muscles, increase your flexibility, and lower your blood pressure/cholesterol, to name a few. Walking also eases stress, helps you sleep better and can improve your mental well-being. All you need is a good pair of walking shoes. Always consult your physician before beginning any exercise program. For a trail map: click here
