May is National Walking Month so get those legs moving!
Wednesday, May 4th, 2022 | Raising Awareness
Did you know May is National Walking Month?
The campaign, led by living Streets’; a charity whose mission is to achieve better walking environments and inspire people to walk more.
This year, they're encouraging you to #Try20 - and walk for 20 minutes each day during May.
And really, we should never take our mobility for granted, so if you are blessed with two working legs, then use them as much as you can! Not only is walking an easy and accessible way to improve physical and mental health, a 20-minute walk can reduce the risk of a number of preventable health conditions, including certain cancers, depression, heart disease and Type 2 diabetes.
By swapping a short drive for a short walk, you can also help reduce air pollution, congestion and road danger - whilst saving yourself some money and getting active in the process!
View their #Try20 tips or download and print your own #Try20 checklist to track your progress.
You could also make up your own and share them on social media using the hashtag!
