The surgery is re-establishing the ‘Walking for Health’ walking group known as the Red House Rovers. We will meet every Wednesday at 2pm at various locations throughout Milton Keynes.
Walking has been described as the nearest activity to perfect exercise. Some of the benefits of regular brisk walking are:
- The minimum recommendation from doctors to keep your body healthy and prevent illness such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes is 150 minutes of activity per week. Brisk walking once a week for an hour will contribute 60 minutes to this.
- Walking improves self-perception, mood, and sleep quality. Stress, anxiety, and fatigue are also reduced.
- Regular brisk walking improves the performance of your heart, lungs, and circulation. It can also lower your blood pressure and reduce the risk of strokes.
- In addition to the medical benefits, walking can be great for your social life, you will make new friends, encourage each other, and develop a network of supportive fellows.
