Friends Walking


Getting a bit of fresh air, a bit more exercise but not so much that you can't breath and talk at the same time. What better way to catch up with old friends or make new ones than going on a walk? According to the NHS walking can build stamina, burn excess calories and give you a healthier heart. We like the fact that exercise helps you release chemicals that make you feel good. That means walking can help you cope with things like depression, stress and anxiety. If you are walking in a group you'll have a laugh too.

How to I find a local group?

Libraries are always good for notices. Or check out the Walking for Health or Ramblers websites.

How far should I walk?

Well that's up to you. How fit do you feel? The NHS says we should all be doing 10,000 steps a day, that's almost 5 miles. Something to aim for perhaps?

Beware of

Slothenly friends

If your friends don't want to go on walks, don't let them put you off. Walkers are a friendly bunch. Find a group and go along you are bound to get chatting to someone along the way.
