Walking for Health

Sometimes there’s nothing more exhilarating than putting on our waterproofs & boots and going for a winters walk in this lovely county of ours.

Walking is an underrated simple, free form of exercise, ideal for people of all ages and fitness levels who want to be more active, healthier and lose weight. Regular walking can also reduce the risk of chronic illnesses, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, asthma, stroke and some cancers and improve mental well-being too.

That said, motivation is often the reason many of us find it hard to start and stick to our good intentions but here are some ways to help you in 2016!

Make it a habit – Think of ways to include walking into your daily routine like walking to get the newspaper.

Join a walking group / Become a volunteer Walking in a group is a great way to start. The Clay Trails in the St Austell area, for example, offer some of the best scenery for miles. So if you want to make new friends and stay motivated by helping others too, contact us to see how we can help.

Set yourself a goal On average, it takes just 10 minutes to walk 1,000 steps! Pedometers/Apps are a fun way to keep track of your progress to 10,000 daily steps. Great way to motivate the children too.

First and foremost though it is all about taking some time out and enjoying yourself – you never know what you may come across!!
