It's no secret that Mother Nature can help heal. Just step outside after a stressful day and you immediately start to feel relief. Add in movement or exercise and the benefits grow. New studies have shown that outdoor activity can aid in recovery from disease, reduce stress, increase concentration, and improve your overall health and wellbeing. If you can enjoy these benefits while burning calories and building muscle, then that is what the doctor ordered.
On Friday August 10th, Paddle for Recovery will be available to the Members of the LIVESTRONG program from the Greendale Family Branch YMCA, in Worcester, MA. Livestrong and Paddle for Recovery helps cancer survivors heal and move forward with healthy living.
