THE EVERWALK MILE BETA TEST
Start by downloading the EverWalk Mile Calendar.
Mark an X each day you complete a mile.
Our vision is to render a mile walk part of the American daily habit, no different than brushing our teeth.
You may some days walk quite a bit farther. Great. But the same values of walking that come alive for us
on a 6-mile outing–joy to immerse ourselves in the outdoors, connection with community of other walkers, contemplation of our lives and the planet–are fulfilled in the 15-30 minutes
that would take each of us to walk one mile.
The way we’re going to get your valuable feedback on this program is for you to weigh in.
Click EverWalk Mile Club to go to our new group page. Join the group!
That’s where you can tell us what’s working, what’s not,
or find a virtual buddy who might help you get motivated to get out every single day…
or you might dive in and motivate somebody else.
We intend to build The EverWalk Mile according to YOUR feedback.
YOUR CALL TO ACTION:
WALK WITH A PURPOSE. MAKE THE EVERWALK MILE A DAILY HABIT.
WHY WALK? AND WHY EVERYDAY?
“Sitting is the New Smoking”: Break the habit of sitting by creating a new habit: The EverWalk Mile
EverWalk believes that the unfortunate American pastime of sitting can be liberated by the
simple, infinitely pleasurable act of walking.
Walking even a short distance stirs our happy endorphins. prompts us to consider our lives and our dreams, puts our bodies into the motion they need.
“Your words become your actions. Your actions become your habits. Your habits become your values.
Your values become your destiny.” – Mahatma Gandhi

THANKS SO MUCH FOR ALL THE POSITIVE FEEDBACK ALREADY!
CMaxwell: My little dog and I can do this! I am in Las Vegas. We are a high desert so it can get well over 100F in July and August. I will get up early, before the sun rises, to walk my mile. If that doesn’t always work, I will do my mile in several short walks through the day with my UV umbrella, hat, sunglasses & sunblock. (Of course, my little dog won’t join me if the pavement is too hot!) Yay for being outdoors!
Houston Walking Dude: Looking forward to that sticker…. Now done 2 programs on the tracker site, and, as you know, walked 3000 miles as an everwalker since 2018. 😀
Roxie: Can’t wait👍
Leah Kroll: I walked over 110 miles in both March and April (no sticker) and 50 miles around New Zealand in May. Knowing that it was being tracked got me moving on days I did not want to move. I took a break in June. My migraines increased and my sleep suffered when I stopped walking.
Sandra M Mathieu: A little nervous about committing to a mile a day. I suppose, nothing ventured, nothing gained.
