A 2km walk to work will take about 20 minutes each way. 30 minutes exercise a day can help you on your way to becoming healthier and feeling great.
When we walk we take in all sorts of things we don’t notice in a car – like birdsong, seasonal changes, window displays and other people out and about. Connecting to our environment and noticing what is around us can help improve our mental health and feelings of wellbeing.
Plus, short distance car trips generate the most pollution per km travelled. Avoiding the short trips by walking is a great way to help the environment.
