Did you know that this simplest form of exercise has incredible benefits for your bones? It’s true! Not only is walking a powerful form of exercise, but it’s also deeply connected to our human origins. Walking upright and freely is what made us who we are today.

  • Why “looking up” and reassessing your health trajectory is paramount to staying on track
  • What “sustainable changes” actually mean when it comes to your diet and exercise habits
