Walk 30 Minutes Every Day

Do It

Walking is an easy way to improve personal health and build stronger cities. Just 30 minutes a day spent walking can reduce the risk of chronic diseases like diabetes, cancer, and heart disease by lowering body fat, bad cholesterol, and blood pressure. And regular walking can increase energy, helping to reduce stress, anxiety, depression, and insomnia. Plus, walking connects us to our neighborhoods, creates equitable communities, and promotes economic development. For those who are physically able: Incorporate more walking into your commute or explore a corner of your city as a pedestrian. Go ahead, get out there on foot for at least a half hour a day—you'll be glad you did.

    Having a dog makes this a twice a day challenge that cannot be avoided.

    Recently started to walk to work, have to walk to work and back home 4 times a day, each walk is 15 minutes, so i walk about 1 hour a day and my insomnia is literally gone!

    Awesome goal truly! Over here at we all keep a great healthy lifestyle! From healthy office foods, to going to the gym every single day as a team, we love the idea of enriching our world and ourselves! Great job! :)

    I walk to office every morning! It takes me about 25 mins, which is a really good exercise !

  • Climate Resolve

    Great goal!

    In our office, we all try to get out, stretch our legs, and enjoy the weather everyday. Sometimes we just head to Homegirl's for a cup of coffee, other times to explore Olvera Street.

    Every early morning when I'm not traveling, I walk with my six month old. Sometimes for just half an hour, sometimes for way longer. Our current obsession is looking for sea glass on the beach where our city meets the ocean. Our collection is growing fast and we've covered a lot of miles in the process.
