Your monthly dose of motivation

When it comes to keeping the doctor away, 10,000 steps might be even better than an apple.

The benefits of 10,000 steps go on and on—better moods, stronger bones, lower blood pressure, and a reduced risk of almost every chronic disease there is, including diabetes, heart disease and certain types of cancer. It boosts your energy, strengthens your lungs, and clears your mind. In short, walking is wonderful.
