Every April, we encourage the entire community to get up and Move More. April is National Move More month and it was created by the American Heart Association to improve the health of Americans encouraging people to get 10,000 steps per day. There are so many benefits of being physically active. In addition to weight loss or weight management, it makes you feel better, helps you relieve stress, helps you sleep better, improves your mood, improves your cognitive function, and so much  more. No matter the type of exercise, we just want you to move more, be more physical active and less sedentary. Going for a simple walk is one of the healthiest things that you can do each day.

For centuries, we’ve known that the health of the brain and the body are connected.
