Exercise

Walking is simple, free and 1 of the easiest ways to get more active, lose weight and become healthier.

Sometimes overlooked as a form of exercise, walking briskly can help you build stamina, burn excess calories and make your heart healthier.

You do not have to walk for hours. A brisk 10-minute daily walk has lots of health benefits and counts towards your recommended 150 minutes of weekly exercise.

Before you start

Any shoes or trainers that are comfortable, provide adequate support and do not cause blisters will do.

If you’re walking to work, you could wear your usual work clothes with a comfy pair of shoes and change shoes when you get into work.

For long walks, you may want to take some water, healthy snacks, a spare top, sunscreen and a sun hat in a small backpack.

If you start going for longer walks regularly, you may want to invest in a waterproof jacket and some specialist walking shoes for more challenging routes.

How do I know if I’m walking fast enough?

A brisk walk is about 3 miles an hour, which is faster than a stroll.

You can tell you’re walking briskly if you can still talk but cannot sing the words to a song.

You could also try using the free Active 10 app on your smartphone.

It tells you when you’re walking fast enough and suggests ways to fit in some more brisk walking.
