Walking for wellness

#Boulderstrong Resource Center continues to roll out new programs with a focus on wellness and overall health.

It’s no secret that walking has great physical benefits but did you know that walking is also great for your emotional well-being? Walking can help ease anxiety and depression along with providing numerous other benefits, such as stress relief, improved sleep, and mood improvement to name just a few.

Join the #Boulderstrong Resource Center walking group every Wednesday at 12 Noon. "Strolling Stronger" is a one-hour walk that will be led by clinical staff members. Everyone is welcomed and encouraged to participate.

Exercise, PTSD and Trauma

Evidence suggests that by really focusing on your body and how it feels as you exercise, you can actually help your nervous system become “unstuck” and begin to move out of the immobilization stress response that characterizes PTSD or trauma.

When faced with mental or emotional challenges in life, exercise can help you build resilience and cope in a healthy way. Regular exercise can also help boost your immune system and reduce the impact of stress.

Exercise that involves cross movement and that engage both arms and legs—such as walking —is very helpful to your emotional well-being.

The walks will begin at the new #BoulderStrong Resource Center at 2935 Baseline Road in Boulder. Please call (303) 545-0844 to register. Remember, every Wednesday at 12 Noon for just one-hour.

King Soopers and Mental Health Partners continue to manage the new center with the goal of providing hope and healing to the Boulder community for many years to come.
