Research also suggests that walking is possibly the single most effective and accessible form of physical activity and health professionals now recommend that everyone should aim to do 30 minutes of moderate exercise (such as walking) at least five times a week. Because walking is such an accessible form of exercise it is particularly beneficial to those who are getting little or no exercise, recovering from illness or lacking in confidence.
Check out the NHS Active 10 walking campaign, which aims to get more people walking. Their free Active 10 app takes away the guesswork – it shows how much brisk walking you’re doing and how you can do more. It’s easy to use and helps you set your goals for the day.
