February is American Heart Month, and a lot of Americans are trying to stay focused on maintaining healthier habits after the initial rush around New Year’s resolutions.
If you’re one of them, trying a more active commute is an easy way to incorporate some heart-healthy exercise into your day and get you where you need to go – a win-win.
Walking to work and biking to work may come to mind when you hear “active commute.” While those are fantastic mobility options, they’re not a fit for everyone. But did you know that even taking transit will help you stay fit?
Don’t take our word for it: there are many studies that bear that hypothesis out. Even getting in a few extra minutes of walking each on your way to and from transit can give you some good health benefits.
