Going for a walk is one of the easiest ways to stay healthy and happy during lockdown.
During the initial lockdown, many of us enjoyed the respite a short walk offered us. Whilst the weather might not be as welcoming this time round, it remains incredibly important for our mental and physical health to stay active and connected to those around us.
Just a 20 minute walk can have fantastic health benefits, helping to stave off chronic conditions like heart disease, certain cancers and diabetes.
Walking can also help ease two of the big side effects of the coronavirus pandemic – isolation and inactivity. A 20 minute walk can refresh you ahead of the working day or help you wind down after a day of screen time.
To help keep your walk interesting, Living Streets have produced a range of activities and resources for you to download for free. From colourful and educational activities when out with the little ones, to #Try20 tips to help you find new ways to fit 20 minutes of walking into your day.
