Getting a bit of fresh air, a bit more exercise but not so much that you can't breath and talk at the same time. What better way to catch up with old friends or make new ones than going on a walk? According to the NHS walking can build stamina, burn excess calories and give you a healthier heart. We like the fact that exercise helps you release chemicals that make you feel good. That means walking can help you cope with things like depression, stress and anxiety. If you are walking in a group you'll have a laugh too.
