May is National Walking Month!

 

May is National Walking Month and as the evenings are lighter for longer, it is the perfect time to get outside and get moving! Walking has a whole range of health benefits so it is the perfect excuse to introduce walking into your daily lives.

Below we have compiled our top benefits of walking 👇

🚶Walking for Weight-loss – If you are new to exercise, trying to gradually lose or maintain weight while walking is a great form of exercise. 20 minutes of walking a day will burn an incredible 7lbs of body fat a year!

🚶Walking gives you energy – There are times when you feel more lethargic than others, and if you find yourself in this zone then a walk could do you good. It boosts your circulation and increases the oxygen supply around your body, which in turn will keep you feeling alert and awake.
 
🚶 Lower your risk of Dementia – An older person who walks six or more miles a week is less likely to have problems such as dementia.This is because walking has been proven to prevent your brain from shrinking.
 
🚶It’s a full Body Workout- Many muscles in your body are activated during walking including; calves, glutes, hamstrings, quads and abdominals, so give it a try and give your legs, bums and tum a workout.
 
🚶Walking Makes You Happy- In the same way walking can help you feel energised, it is also great for making you feel happy. A brisk walk can be just as beneficial as taking an antidepressant, and can be a great helping hand if you are suffering from depression, anxiety or feeling stressed. Plus during the warmer months it is a fantastic way to get Vitamin D!
 
 
 Make sure you get out, one foot in-front of the other and keep going!
