Celebrate Walktober and Pedestrian Safety Month all Month Long
Walking is a great way to get the physical activity needed to obtain health benefits. Walking does not require any special skills. It also does not require a gym membership or expensive equipment. A single bout of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity can improve sleep, memory, and the ability to think and learn. It also reduces anxiety symptoms, improves balance and cardiovascular circulation.
Need inspiration to walk more? Join a local walking group for encouragement, socialization and more. Walking to school with your family and neighbors is a good place to start. For our older residents, the Culver City Senior Center has twice monthly group walks. And the Culver City EverWalk Walking Club meets on the first Saturday of each month at Coombs Park for a group walk of about an hour.
Celebrate walking as a healthy form of transportation – get up, get out, and get moving!
