Walking is simple, free and one of the easiest ways to get more active, lose weight and become healthier.

It’s underrated as a form of exercise, but walking is ideal for people of all ages and fitness levels who want to be more active.

As with other types of exercise, walking is good for both your physical health and your mental health. It can:

  • reduce the risk of chronic illnesses, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, asthma, stroke and some cancers
  • improve your mood
  • treat depression – it’s as effective as medicines for mild depression
  • reduce stress and anxiety
  • build self-esteem

Exercise causes the release of particular hormones (chemicals produced naturally by your body) called endorphin’s. These create a ‘natural high’ bringing about changes in your body that make you feel better and happier.
