User Rating:  / 0
PoorBest 

Now that March has arrived we are inching closer to Spring.  While we still have many cold days ahead, warmer times will be here soon.  It’s a great time for your and your family to Get Out, Get Active.  According to the Harvard School of Public Health “Getting regular physical activity is one of the best things you can do for your health. It lowers the risk of heart disease, diabetes, stroke, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, and certain cancers, and it can also help control stress, improve sleep, boost mood, keep weight in check, and reduce the risk of falling and improve cognitive function in older adults.”

Some of the resources we are featuring this month are:
