Lead. Walk. Talk. to a Healthier Ventura County

#HealthyVC2030

 

Ventura County Public Health (VCPH) wants Ventura County to become the healthiest county in the nation by 2030.  In 2016, Ventura County ranked 8th out of 57 counties in California for health outcomes and 16th for health factors, so there is still much work to be done to improve overall health and well-being.  With the vision of becoming the healthiest county by 2030, VCPH is launching the Lead, Walk, Talk campaign. 

 

Lead to inspire others.  Walk to stay active.  Talk to ensure a healthy future.

 

 

Adults should do at least 2 hours and 30 minutes each week of aerobic physical activity at a moderate level OR 1 hour and 15 minutes each week of aerobic physical activity at a vigorous level.  Children and adolescents should do 60 minutes or more of physical activity each day.  For more information visit: https://www.choosemyplate.gov/physical-activity-amount.

 

We're thrilled to have you walking with us to better health and wellness.  Our challenge for you is to wear your pedometer, walk daily, and log those steps.  If you are needing a little more motivation to get started how about this: every minute of walking can increase your lifespan by 3 minutes!  It's also a great way to lose or maintain weight, boost your energy, increase productivity, prevent diabetes, and the list goes on.  Jump on in - the water is fine.

 

The Details:

Individual Goal:  7,000 steps per day!
