National Walking Month - Let's Get Walking!

Wednesday, 19 April 2017

May is National Walking Month and here at Myakka we love to get out and about on our own two feet. This year the aim is to get us walking for 20 minutes a day.

This is the perfect opportunity to stretch your legs and give walking a try. Whether it is a walk around the park during your lunch break or a walk to and from the shop, walking has many benefits. Even a short walk will burn calories, improve your heart health and blood pressure. Not to mention, it'll make you feel brighter and lift your mood. So why not give 20 minutes of walking every day in May a try?

Rate your walk during National Walking Month...

During the National Walking Month, Living Streets will show you 20 fun and easy tips to help fit a 20 minute walk into your everyday life. Take a look at the Living Streets website for all the helpful tips and advice to fit that all important 20mins into your day. They also have a handy 'rate your walk' tool. This tool aims to help Living Streets gather information on the quality of walks in your local area. To rate your walk, simply click here.

Living Streets campaigns to make our streets safer for pedestrians and cyclists. In turn, this makes our environment a safer, cleaner and more social place. They are running a number of campaigns; ‘Show your love for 20mph’ encourages councils to make residential and shopping areas a 20mph limit; a campaign to stop pavement parking which causes pedestrians to walk on the road; a campaign to remove ice from pavements as well as roads during the winter months. Their website is full of hints and ideas on steps we can take to improve our streets. In addition, you'll find tips on how to campaign for safer streets in your area.

Take a look at Living Streets website to pledge, or to find out more about Living Streets and how to help their campaigns. You can find out more about National Walking Month here.
