WORKPLACE WALKING PROGRAM:

Did you know that “one hour of walking = two more hours of life”? The American Heart Association (AHA) recently stated that research shows for every hour of regular exercise, you can increase your life expectancy by two hours. Walking is one of the simplest ways to incorporate physical activity into one's daily routine. Workplace walking with a colleague(s) during lunch or break times is a great way to add those extra hours to your life!

EAP encourages University employees to find a "walking buddy" and get moving!
