Start small – it’s the best way! But knowing where to start can often be the hardest bit. As the warmer weather creeps in, why not make a pledge to get outside more, try something new, get a little healthier, and kick off a journey to moving a little more each day.
In saying that, it doesn’t have to be a massive step straight away – it doesn’t have to cost money – it doesn’t have to take up lots of time – and it doesn’t have to mean intense sport. Movement comes in so many forms, and we can increase our daily movement gradually. In fact, research says that this is the best way to think about it.
It’s Walk this May!
Research suggests, that over 60% of people who want to start moving more, take up walking! It’s simple, free, can be done in most places, and can be enjoyed either on your own or with others. Plus, it’s great for all ages!
A daily brisk walk can give your body a boost, lift your mood and make everyday activities easier. Whether you would like to give this a go on your own, or with others, we’ve got some great walking challenges to join in with for free, to help you on your way. Now the days are getting warmer, walks help get the blood pumping, ensure you get outside and is a fantastic way to keep your step count up.
