Walking is a fantastic way to get – and stay – healthy.

One of the reasons health experts give walking rave reviews is because it’s a ‘lifestyle exercise’. That means you can usually make time for it without too much of a change to your daily routine. Walking to work, to the shops, or the final mile from the train station may take a little more time, but it’s certainly not the big project that signing up for a gym (and the time or cost to get there) can be.

Because it’s easy to fit into everyday life, people who walk tend to keep it up. And as you’ll see below, regular exercise is exactly what you need to improve your health.

There are plenty of walking links around Seaton Sands and a number of handy local facilities, including The Sports Domes, are located within easy walking distance. Why not therefore think about taking a walk next time you need to travel somewhere local – it will improve your health and save you money.
