This is a great summary of a study done by Indiana University.
Walking at work has been touted as a great way to normalize blood flow, decrease low back pain and increase morale in the workplace. This video sums everything up nicely from a walking study done by Indiana University. An increase in muscle activity thus creating better blood flow was shown to normalize arterial function in the body. If workers are allowed to sit for periods, blood tends to pool in the legs since muscles are not effectively helping circulation go back to the heart as talked about in this video from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Another great performance at the Sounds of Summer Concert Series in Downtown Eau Claire's Phoenix Park. Put on by Volume One and a sleu of community sponsors, bands from around the area have been bringing in large gatherings every week. This week they hosted the Tropo Big Band from Chippewa Falls. They played an assortment of jazz ensembles and a few other well known songs such as YMCA and Bohemian Rapsody. The kids were dancing in front of the band and quite a few adults joined in as well.
There are two more concerts before the end of the series so be sure to catch one before it's too late!
