Spring into Summer

1st April – 31st May

With warmer weather on the way, it’s time to shake off the lockdown blues and get outside for a walk, wheel or maybe something else!

We’ve all been spending a lot of time indoors recently. So this spring, we’re challenging you to get moving in a way that works for you and enjoy the benefits of being active – while having fun at the same time.

Not only can a daily walk or activity improve your physical health, it can boost your mental wellbeing too. Being active can also support our social wellbeing, so why not challenge a friend and keep in touch virtually to encourage and motivate each other along the way?

It’s time to grab your trainers and join us as we Spring into Summer!

Walking is wonderful!

There are so many benefits to getting outside for a walk or a wheel.
From boosting your mood to helping improve your health, here are just a few of the reasons we love walking:

  • 2 hours of walking per week can reduce your risk of stroke by up to 30%.
  • 30 minutes of walking a day can reduce symptoms of depression by up to 36%.
  • A daily 1-hour walk can cut your risk of obesity in half.
  • Regular walks of 30-60 minutes can reduce your risk of heart disease by 35%.

Taking a break, getting outside and connecting with nature can do wonders for your mental health, and regular walks are a simple way to help you look after your physical health too.
