Walking for healthWalking for Heath

Walking is a safe and easy way to improve your health. 30 minutes brisk walking 5 days a week can:

  • Make you feel good
  • Give you energy
  • Help you sleep better
  • Help reduce stress
  • Keep your heart "strong"
  • Reduce blood pressure
  • Help manage your weight

Walking the Way to Health helps people to get back into walking who may not have taken part in exercise for some time.

There are several free walk schemes that are helping thousands of people do just that.

Local schemes mean everyone can take regular walks with a trained walk leader in a safe environment around a nearby park or open space. Find a scheme near you.
