Physical activity doesn’t have to mean joining a gym. Working in your backyard garden, playing with your kids, or taking the stairs instead of the elevator are, but some examples. It is all about moving the body. Walking is free, it is easy, and it is something we can do just by stepping out the door. We are all aware of the threats of NCDs and what behaviors can help us avoid these issues. Now is the time to walk the talk. Let’s celebrate Physical Activity Month by taking those first steps towards health!
Our Constitution may be our supreme law and the law from which all other laws flow. But it is not a document gathering dust on a lawyer’s shelf. It is a living document.

And to defend and protect, which is why our men and women in uniform are also part of this commemoration.
