Walking has been described as the perfect exercise. Walking is a normal everyday activity and that’s why we often forget it is exercise at all. So why is walking the perfect exercise?
- walking keeps our bodies healthy by helping maintain a healthy weight and giving us energy which makes us feel good!
- just like other forms of exercise, walking releases chemicals that make us feel good which helps with stress, anxiety and depression
- walking can help you socialise and make friends – have a look at the links below to find local walking groups
- walking keeps your body healthy and prevent illness such as heart disease, cancer and diabetes.
