May sees the return of National Walking Month. Living Streets are encouraging you to walk for 20 minutes each day with their #Try20 campaign. There are many benefits to taking a short walk each day, including; strengthening your heart, lowering the risk of diseases, helping lose weight and generally making you feel happier! As walking is an everyday activity, it’s quite easy to forget it’s exercise too! Take a look at their #Try20 tips to find easy ways to fit in a 20 minute walk everyday this month.
In addition to encouraging you to walk more, Living Streets would like you to ‘rate your walk’ in order to find out which are the most walkable cities in the country. Head on over to their website to complete the short survey for your chance to win a fantastic family city break to a UK city of your choice!
