Phoenix is one of the most unsafe places in America for pedestrians. The Complete Streets Advisory Board (CSAB) has been working for the past several years to increase safety by making Phoenix’s streets safer for everyone to walk, bike, use public transportation, and drive. Unfortunately, this process has hit more than a few road blocks.
New transportation plans aim to increase safe places to stay active in Arizona
As bicycling and walking become increasingly popular forms of transportation, having a safe way for cyclists and pedestrians to navigate roads is incredibly important. Walking and biking are great ways to improve mental and physical health for you and your loved ones. Bike lanes and sidewalk additions are popping up all over America, and cities in Arizona are making changes to promote alternative forms of travel and transportation safety.
Springtime is officially here! Sunshine is abundant, flowers are in bloom, and cool breezes fill the air. While Arizona in the spring is difficult to beat, springtime in the desert seems to come and go in the blink of an eye. In just a couple of months, triple digit temperatures will make it nearly impossible to exercise for very long outside. As the weather here hits a comfortable balance between hot and cold, now is an excellent time to get out and be active outdoors. Celebrate the last week of National Nutrition Month with a healthy dose of physical activity!
Regular exercise and a balanced diet do wonders for mental and physical well-being, but did you know that simply spending time in the great outdoors touts many of the same benefits? It’s true: nature offers boosts to mood, energy levels, and immunity. This spring, add an extra boost of wellness to your workout with some open-air fun, and be sure to fuel that fun with nutritious snacks.
