Did you know that walking briskly for just 10 continuous minutes counts as exercise?
It’s easier than you think to fit into your day!
10 brisk minutes
A brisk 10 minute walk every day can make a difference to your health. Each 10 minute burst of exercise is known as an “Active 10”.
Brisk walking is simply walking faster than usual, at a pace that gets your heart pumping. Start with a 10 minute brisk walk a day and then see if you can gradually build up to more.
It’s the easy way to improve your health and wellbeing. No gym memberships, no Lycra. Just 10 minutes and you!
And that’s not all…
- A regular 10 minute brisk walk can make you feel better in so many ways. It can boost your energy, clear your head and lift your mood.
- It can help people with lower back pain and those at risk of high blood pressure.
- It’s also seriously good for your long-term health – it can reduce your risk of serious illnesses like heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
The NHS is supporting Active 10 – there’s an app to download and a lot more information on their website:
