Modern day life makes it hard to be healthy, so it’s not surprising that most of us are not fitting enough physical activity into our days. The number of inactive people is on the rise and currently only 26.7% of 55-64 year olds living in Essex are classed as active.
The good news is that you don’t have to wear sports kit or start an expensive fitness programme to get the benefits of an active lifestyle - brisk walking counts too!
A daily brisk ten minute walk can be simple to fit into your everyday life. 50,000 are already on their way to a healthier lifestyle as they have downloaded the free ‘Active 10’ app. This new app shows how much brisk walking you’re doing, when you can increase your pace and how you can fit more brisk walking into your day. It also sets goals and provides hints and tips to keep you going.
