Remember:
These feet were made for walking.
A little walking everyday is far better than an occasional weekend bout of frenzied activity.
Health Canada recommends 150 minutes of moderate to vigorous activity per week, in bouts of 10 minutes or
more. More physical activity provides greater health benefits.
