With temperatures (finally) warming up, let’s take this opportunity to spend some time outside enjoying the lovely North Carolina spring. Sun, breeze, flowers, and warmth… it’s tough to beat! In addition to sitting in a rocking chair and marveling at the beauty around us, it’s a great time to be active. In our community health survey last year, many Chatham residents mentioned that not having a group to exercise with was a barrier to them being more physically active. And the evidence shows there is a strong basis for getting by with a little help from our friends. Social support can have many health benefits, from helping with stress management to literally saving lives. It can also help us and our children to be physically active. Luckily, there are some great opportunities coming up to meet fellow Chathamites and be active. See the list below and sign up today!
