Employee Wellness is here to encourage you to get out and move during your workday. Walking is one of the easiest forms of exercise to incorporate into your daily routine and can help boost your mood, energy, and even productivity. The American College of Sports Medicine recommends 30-60 minutes of daily physical activity.
To meet that goal, try the UNM Lobo Trails! Paths vary in length and offer a variety of scenery. Start a walking group or just head out on your own. Walking promotes a healthier lifestyle and can improve overall UNM community wellness.
