Public Health England has launched a new One You Physical Activity Campaign which aims to encourage adults to build more physical activity into their life, starting with a brisk ten minute walk.
The busy nature of modern life means that it is often difficult to fit exercise into our days. We could all do a bit more to get more ‘Healthier’, most of us are not physically active enough. Short term benefits of building 10 minutes brisk walk into your day are that it gets the heart pumping faster, can make you feel better, more energetic and improve your mood. Over time, brisk walking can help to lower the risk of serious illness like heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
The Active 10 app is the first free app to show you when you are walking fast enough and long enough to get the health benefits. The app shows how much brisk walking you’re doing, where you can increase your pace and fit more into your day. The app also sets goals and provides hints and tips to keep you going. Search ‘Active 10’ online to find out more and to download the app as shown HERE.
