The design of our public space plays a significant role in motivating physical activity and promoting all aspects of health, whether physical, mental, or social. Our expanded understanding of how the spaces in which we live, work, and play influence our health has motivated a renewed focus on public spaces, once the mainstays of our communities. The Glen Oaks Library in Queens, NY is a perfect example of how the design of a space can transform a standard municipal building with no obvious connection to well-being into a health-promoting space for the community.
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. Fortunately, it is largely preventable and there are many things people can do to reduce their risk, such as being more active. The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute at the National Institutes of Health is encouraging Americans to move more and #MoveWithHeart to celebrate American Heart Month.
