Would you like to spice up your lunch plans today, why not add a bit of exercise to the old lunch routine?
Workers are encouraged to put on their comfy shoes and take a walk during lunch today.
It's all part of National Walk at Lunch Day, created to motivate everyone towards a healthy lifestyle.
The idea is to make today the start of a new daily walking routine. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services estimates the cost to treat illness and chronic disease caused by inactive lifestyles, is nearly $1,000 per family in America every year.
Health experts say simply getting 30 minutes of exercise like a brisk walk five times a week can have significant health benefits.
So for those who might need a little extra motivation, today is the perfect day to start.
Grab some lunch and enjoy the sunny weather by taking a walk wherever you are.
