Why is walking the perfect activity for health?

  • Almost everyone can do it
  • You can do it anywhere at anytime
  • It’s free and you don’t need special equipment
  • You can start slowly and build up at your own pace

Regular walking will help you feel good, reduce your blood pressure, reduce your stress levels, keep your heart strong, improve your sleep patterns and help to manage your weight.

In North Tyneside there are several walking groups to join, as well as a wide range of self-led walking routes to explore.
