Oh, we can always dream about being Colin Kaepernick for a day or even LeBron James during the NBA Finals. But in today’s reality we are all faced with many hardships that life offers. Some of us have hardships that are here today and gone tomorrow, while some of us are blessed with hardships that last forever.

Active Commuting for a Healthy Heart

Active Commuting for a Healthy Heart Tagged with:

This might be because I am a poor graduate student who likes to save on gas, or because my car is a lease and I don’t want to put miles on it…but one of the best reasons to leave the car in the garage (or parking lot) is because active commuting is great for your health! Active commuting can decrease your risk for heart disease by more than 10% and also helps to manage your weight (Hamer and Chida, 2008).
