Where is your favorite place to walk in Ocean County? Are you a Mall walker or do you prefer a scenic nature trail? Maybe you have a favorite park or a local track. Some might use a treadmill at home or in the gym.

Whichever you choose, if walking is part of your daily routine, you are in luck. Because today (April 6th) is National Walking Day.

The American Heart Association sponsors today to promote healthy living and to remind everyone of the benefits of walking.

If you brought your sneakers to work today, why not put them on at lunch time, put in your ear buds and take me and WOBM with you for 30 minutes of fun and fitness. If you have a fitbit, an afternoon walk is great way to reach your goal.

Here are a few tips to help make your walk more enjoyable:

Remember to stretch and warm up before exercising

Dress for the weather in comfy clothes and shoes

Walk with a neighbor, a friend, or bring your dog

Remember to hydrate
