Walktober is here and as temperatures begin to drop, you may be thinking about starting up your regular walking routine. Did you know that studies have shown that taking a 30 minute walk five times a week can help lower your risk of heart disease, diabetes and stroke? Walking also helps improve your mood and gets your creative juices flowing!
