Walking in MCR
Here in Manchester, we’re continually making strides to play our part in Greater Manchester’s ambition to be the first ‘Walking Region’ in the UK.
And the beauty with walking, is that you don’t have to do a lot to reap the rewards. The minimum recommendation to keep your body healthy and prevent illness is 150 minutes of activity a week. So that’s just a 30 minute walk per day, 5 days a week – or break that down into smaller chunks of 10 or 15 minute walks.
A good walk will do wonders for your mental well-being. Improving self-perception and self-esteem, mood and sleep quality, and reducing stress, anxiety and fatigue. Being physically active helps those who are depressed recover and in older people can improve cognitive function, memory, attention and processing speed, and reduce the risk of cognitive decline and dementia.
At the top of the page you can search for inspiration across Manchester and Greater Manchester too, including Health Walks, Nordic Walking, Park Walks and Walking Activities (such as walking football), with hopefully something for everyone to put their best foot forward.
