Look for any reason to walk.

Look for any reason to walk.

You would think that with all the advances in healthcare over the past 50 years, we’d see much longer life spans, wouldn’t you?  The problem is that changes in lifestyle are offsetting this progress.  People are much less active today than they were 50 years ago due to labor-saving devices, desk jobs, electronics of every size, and 500 channel satellite packages.  Then we have over-sized pantries and refrigerators to reduce the need to shop and remote controls that eliminate having to get off the couch to adjust the channel or fan. Put some of that saved time toward a physical activity you enjoy, and let’s live longer and healthier lives.
