Active 10

A new national health and wellbeing campaign has now launched – it’s called ‘Active 10’.  It’s aimed at getting adults more active through 10 brisk minutes of walking each day

A brisk 10 minute walk every day can make a difference to your health. Each 10 minute burst of exercise is known as an “Active 10”. Brisk walking is simply walking faster than usual, at a pace that gets your heart pumping. Start with a 10 minute brisk walk a day and then see if you can gradually build up to more.

A brisk 10 minute walk every day can make us feel better in so many ways. It can boost energy, clear your head and lift our mood. It also raises the heart rate and can go some way towards lowering the risk of serious illnesses, such as heart disease and type 2 diabetes. It’s the easy way to improve health and wellbeing. No gym memberships, no Lycra, just 10 minutes each day.
