Weekly Challenge for 4/14 - 4/20:

Walk outside for 10 minutes daily.

Our bodies need Vitamin D, which comes from the sun. We don't produce it naturally. Twenty minutes outside is enough exposure for an average adult. What happens if we are Vitamin D deficient? In a word, depression. Vitamin D deficiency is a major component in seasonal depression. Studies have shown that participants who exercise outdoors feel revitalized, have increased energy levels, and feel more satisfied. At the same time they decrease their levels of tension, depression and anger.

This weeks' challenge is to walk/exercise outside for at least 10 minutes daily for the entire week. You will be able to submit that you completed the challenge on Monday, April 21. You must complete the challenge 6 out of 7 days to get credit.
