Make Time for Friends
Make Time for Friends

Making time for friends can improve your health. Friends make everyday moments more fun and are supportive during the tough times.


Friends help reduce stress and are your biggest cheerleaders when it comes to sticking to a diet or exercise plan.

Do your physical and mental health a favor and call up one of your friends to go for a visit to one of our area parks. You can take a stroll or even jump some rope.

Did you know a daily walk can improve your health?  It reduces your risk for heart disease, helps you achieve a healthy weight and improves balance. 


To gain all of these health benefits, why not find a walking partner?  There are hundreds of dogs just waiting to be rescued at our local shelters.  Adopt a walking partner this year, and save two lives – an animal’s and possibly your own.

There’s no denying the benefits of daily exercise. It controls your weight, elevates your energy and even boosts your mood. It can be hard to squeeze in a daily workout.


Be creative when looking for daily exercise moments. Pick the furthest parking spot. Always take the stairs. Dance during commercials. And yes, chasing the kids around counts too.

Are you looking to burn calories, build muscle and improve your balance? Well look no further than your nearest Lowcountry waterway and give paddle boarding a try.


Paddle boarding has become increasingly popular for good reason - it offers a great low impact workout along with a healthy dose of vitamin D and stress relief. There are several local companies offering guided tours and rentals. So no excuses, start paddling your way to better health.

Gardening is great exercise. It increases flexibility and balance while burning calories. But, the benefits of gardening go beyond the physical.


Gardens are an oasis of calm in a hectic world.

People who grow their own food also tend to eat healthier overall. Vegging out provides an abundance of the freshest, healthiest foods just outside your door. If you can’t create your own garden, take advantage of our local farmers’ markets.
