April has long been synonymous with keeping the Earth healthy. Earth Day, Earth Week, even Arbor Day all fall during the fourth month of the year. While it’s important to take care of our environment, it’s equally important to take care of ourselves

This Sunday, April 7 is World Health Day; a day that honors the founding of the World Health Organization and highlights global public health topics. This year’s efforts will focus on high blood pressure awareness, as one in three adults worldwide currently have the condition (World Health Organization).                                                                                                

High blood pressure, also known as hypertension, is a serious condition. However, there are ways to treat and reduce the risk of developing it including maintaining a healthy body weight and participating in regular physical activity.

The first step toward a healthier lifestyle, whether you’re working to reduce your blood pressure or not, is to create a plan for success. We’ve gathered a few past blog posts, which we hope will be helpful to you in setting goals to get more active.

Please remember to consult your doctor before beginning any new exercise or diet regimen.
