Walking is good for your mind, your body and your soul,
and any increase in physical activity, no matter how small,
can really boost your health and happiness
which is why, here at the Ramblers, we want to help everyone find their feet.
The UK Chief Medical Officers recommend adults do at least 150 minutes a week of moderate physical activity
one way of achieving this would be to walk for 30 minutes, five days a week.
However, only around a third of people in Britain achieve the minimum recommendations.
The Rambllers short and health walks programmes are a great way to get started, and in England alone,
the Ramblers and Macmillan Cancer Support have helped more than 67,000 people get walking.
Keep up with Ramblers' Campaigns
It's also really important that we remember that the Ramblers
is NOT just about going on lovely walks (great as that is!); the Ramblers is also a campaigning organisation on
a range of issues.
