This month we're encouraging you to get active, get outdoors and take care of your body! Let's reap the benefits of getting our bodies moving and breathing more deeply as a result of exercising, laughing and even singing! We don't all need to run marathons. There are simple things we can all do to take care of our bodies — for example, unplugging from technology, getting outside, and — importantly — making sure we get enough sleep!April 1 ~ Commit to being more active this month, starting today.
