WALKNG FOR HEALTH…

Walking for health encourages people to get active by arranging health waks up and down the Country for all levels of fitness.

Walking will improve stamina, help keep weight gain at bay and reduce your risk of major diseases. 20 minutes of walking can burn up 100 calories.

It is also beneficial for SAD sufferers who feel low and lathargic due to the lack of sunlight in the winter months.

Walking for life was set up in 2000 and now has over 600 local schemes with 66,000 regular walkers nationwide. Over the Christmas period, walking for life registered their 100,000th walker onto their database.

  1. I absolutely agree! I walk every day, though not right now but soon will again. One of my loved ones lives in the country, plenty of walking …. but has installed a ‘gym’ in her home and has joined 2 gym classes. Costs a fortune. Walk I say Walk!!!!!!!!

    • Yes me to ohtralala I love walking and as for a gym – well you can forget that especially with my back. I do miss the longer walks which we do in the summer but I still walk no matter what the weather with my Bess every day 🙂

  2. I wanted to do an exercise like walking, but just don’t have the discipline, I found so many excuses, so I got a dog. Now I’m out twice a day, for about an hour, rain or shine, so it had better be doing me good 😉
