Walk in the Park
Saturday March 30th is National Walk in the Park Day
Enjoy the bounties nature has to offer on “Take a Walk in the Park Day.”
This is the unofficial national holiday that encourages people to get active and enjoy the physical and mental benefits that come from walking in nature.
Studies have shown that walking for about 30 minutes a day can have huge health benefits. Walking can not only help burn calories and reduce weight, but can also lower the risk of obesity, type 2 diabetes, it can also increase heart activity and lower blood pressure.
Reduces Stress and Boosts Mood
Walking in nature - away from the dust and pollution of streets and cars - can boost moods and reduce stress. Studies have shown that people who walk in green areas tend to be happier than those who don't. It can also remind us to mindful of the environment and maybe make us stop to think how we can do all we can to help preserve our beautiful surroundings.
Get Involved !
Wear your finest walking shoes, leave your phone behind and breathe in the fresh air as you walk around your local park.
Take a friend or a fun family member to accompany you on your walk.
What better way to enjoy nature and maintain your health than to share it with friends and family?
Of course, you can take time out from everyone and go it alone to find some peace and tranquil relaxation.
Obviously British weather can never be relied upon so pack a waterproof just in case!!
