Get out and about and socialise!
Walk more and feel the difference……
Why is walking the perfect activity for health?
- Almost everyone can do it
- You can do it anywhere and anytime
- It’s a chance to make new friends
- It’s free and you don’t need special equipment
- You can start slowly and build up gradually at your own pace
Regular walking will help you feel good, reduce your blood pressure, reduce your stress levels, keep your heart strong, improve your sleep patterns and help to manage your weight. You will feel an increase in your energy levels and much happier due to the realease of endorphins (‘Happy hormones’).
How much is enough?
Adults should aim to be active daily. Over a week, activity should add up to at least 150 mins (2 ½ hours) of moderate intense physical activity, in bouts of 10 mins or more – or 30 mins every day!
