May is National Walking Month and it’s about getting out more rather than how fast or how far you can walk . There are so many benefits for getting out for a walk, not least it all counts towards the 150 minutes of aerobic activity that we should be trying to work towards each week even if it’s just a stroll around the garden. Try and go at a pace you are going at a pace you can have a conversation BUT you couldn’t sing a song!
Here are some of the other benefits you could see
- reduce stress
- improve sleep
- improve cardiovascular fitness (heart & lung health!)
- strengthen bones and muscles
- improve muscle endurance
(don’t forget Chichester Wellbeing run a free guided walk programme more details here)
