Did you know that this month is National Walking Month. Living Streets is asking the nation to give walking a go and pledge to #Try20. They’re challenging you to see if you can walk 20 minutes every day throughout the month.
There are lots of easy ways to fit walking into your day – at work, once you clock off, with your family and at the weekend so you can walk your way to happiness this May.
Feel-good reasons to #Try20
- Feel the burn – burn calories and increase your metabolism
- Feel fitter – improve heart health and blood pressure
- Feel brighter – a 20 minute walk can boost your mood
- Feel connected – discover new things in your community
As part of NWM, 21 – 25 May is Walk to School Week. A generation ago, 70% of us walked to school – now it’s less than half. We want to reverse this decline. We want children to be energised and empowered, and to make walking to school their natural choice.
