Walk this May!

May is National Walking Month, so why not make the most of the drier weather and enjoy the great outdoors with a walk! 

Walking is one of the easiest ways to improve your health and stay connected. Just 30 minutes every day can improve your fitness, help you maintain a healthy weight, strengthen your bones and reduce your risk of heart disease and stroke. 

If you can’t manage a 30-minute walk, you can always break this down into shorter walks throughout the day. Check out Living Streets, who have put together 20 tips to help you fit 20 minutes of walking into your day, from inviting friends for a walk to taking a post-work stroll. How many #Try20 tips can you do in May?

Walking is also a great way to meet new people, and there’s plenty of walking groups here in Northumberland to help you do that, from exploring local woodland areas to strolls along the sea front.
