We all know that Walking is good for us – but did you know that May is National Walking Month?
National charity Living Streets (www.livingstreets.org.uk) run National Walking Month, which includes Walk to Work Week (13-17 May 2013) and Walk to School Week (20-24 May) and are encouraging us to down our oyster cards and Walk to Work. For those who live far away from the workplace, why not get off a few stops earlier and instead of using your travel card, use your ticket to stride and that often forgotten mode of transport, our feet!
Walking makes a huge difference to our life and mental health – just half an hour of walking a day can make a real impact. Why not take a look at the ‘feats for your feet’ over on the Living Streets Website and find out more about this fab little charity. They offer free resources and a wealth of information about walking.8
With many of us driving to the gym then using a treadmill, why not rediscover the worlds greatest treadmill, the pavement, and become part of National Walking Month 2013. Follow them on twitter on @livingstreets
