Take the 'I Can Walk' pledge – for simple stress relief

Aug 08, 2011
Stress is something that affects many people – either at work or at home. An easy way to manage stress is to increase your physical activity.

Stress is something that affects many people – either at work or at home. An easy way to manage stress is to increase your physical activity. If a coffee shop is close to a kilometre away, the return trip is a brisk 20 to 30 minute walk. By taking this walk every day you will be meeting the minimum physical activity guidelines recommended for adults by the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology.

 

Make a commitment to increase your physical activity by taking the I Can Walk pledge, at www.icanwalk.ca.  The website calculates how far your pledge will take you in a year and how many kilograms of greenhouse gas emission you will have saved by not driving.

 

The stress reduction is something you’ll be able to measure yourself.
