Walking offers the most amazing health benefits. Join us this May as we invite you all to get out and about in our beautiful county. With the help of our friends at Active Dorset, we have tips, tools, routes and more to share - so put your best foot forward!
Most of us spend far too much time sitting. Sitting for more than four hours a day can increase our risk of long-term health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes and cancer, and sitting for at least eight hours a day could increase the risk of premature death by up to 60%.
Walking is a free and easy way to build more activity into our lives. By walking as little as 30 minutes a day, five days a week, you can improve your heart and lung health, prevent arthritis-related joint pain, reduce stress and anxiety, and maintain a healthy weight.
