Just what the doctor ordered: Go for a walk!
When it’s cold outside, it can be tempting to hunker down. But sitting all day is not good for your body – or your mind.
Sedentary lifestyles can lead to a long list of physical health problems, from back ache, muscle weakness and slow digestion to an increased risk of heart disease and diabetes. And new research highlights the negative impact it can have on mental health too.
Spending long periods of time sitting each day is linked to an increased risk of depression. Go for a daily walk starting today!
Walk along the entire sidewalk system at Nipper Park and you’ll walk almost a mile!

Construction has begun on the Veterans Memorial. Memorial bricks were placed at the site but have been temporarily moved due to heavy machinery that will be used in the construction. There have been about 350 memorial bricks ordered. The Veterans Memorial and Freedom Bell will be built on Cardiff Hill Overlook, allowing a beautiful view of the Mississippi River. The pathway will consist of memorial bricks. The bricks must have the name of a service member, but does not have to be a Hannibal resident, former or current. The bricks may be purchased by loved ones to honor a member of the military. The customized bricks may be purchased for $125 per brick. Additional donors of $500 or more will be listed on a plaque adjacent to the memorial.
