Choosing to walk
December 10, 2022

By Lorraine, DePaul Healthy Trailblazer Journal | Have you ever wondered why your parents are always talking about how back in their day, they played outside all day, every day? But now, it is not always safe to go outside and play because of shootings. 

But when it is safe, walking is very good for your body and the mind. But did you know that it’s good for the climate as well? By walking instead of driving, people reduce pollution. People get very good air.
