Get walking this May


May is national walking month and we are encouraging people to take part in a walking challenge for the month challenge, to step out for 20 minutes every day.

The benefits of walking are plenty, just to name a few:

  • Walking 20 minutes to the shops or work and back four days a week can help you lose one pound a month. It also reduces the risk of obesity, diabetes and heart disease.
  • Walking can help boost self-esteem, mood, self-perception, sleep quality and energy
  • Walking journeys of under two miles would significantly reduce carbon emissions, congestion and improve air quality.

Why try these this month:

  • Take part in one of the listed walks below
  • Go for a stroll with a friend, rather than a coffee
  • Every time your walk instead of get the bus or drive a car, put the money you have saved into a jar and treat yourself at the end of the month.

Whatever you do #WalkThisMay.
