Build Steps Into Your Day
Walking as part of a group or event isn't always possible when we're busy, but there are lots of ways to build walking into every day activities.
Travelling actively is a great way to boost your daily steps and your health, whilst improving the environment and the safety of our roads.
- Walk the School run, or park further away
- Try a Lunch Time Walk to break up the working day
- Use Public Transport for longer journeys and get off at an earlier stop
- Take the Stairs when you feel able to do so.
- Walking Meetings with your team or clients to discuss work in a more relaxed way
For support with brisk walking tips visit: One You Active 10 website where you can download the free app direct to your android or iphone.
