Get Walking

By far the easiest way to get active, walking doesn’t need to be planned, doesn’t need any special equipment and is as sociable as you like – and by walking to school or work, it’s really simple to build some exercise into your day. It also helps relieve stress, cuts the risk of heart disease and lowers blood pressure!
