Get ready to #WALKTHISMAY
May is Living Streets' National Walking Month. This year, we're encouraging you to #Try20 - and walk for 20 minutes each day during May.
Walking is an easy and accessible way to improve physical and mental health and a 20-minute walk can reduce the risk of a number of preventable health conditions, including certain cancers, depression, heart disease and Type 2 diabetes.
By swapping a short drive for a short walk, you can also help reduce air pollution, congestion and road danger - whilst saving yourself some money and getting active in the process!
View our #Try20 tips or download and print your own #Try20 checklist to track your progress.
You could also make up your own and share them on social media using the hashtag!
Don't forget to scroll down to enter our #Try20 challenge for your chance to win big!
Living Streets wants everyone to be able to choose ways to make short journeys that are active, healthy and stress-free. We believe our streets should be open and accessible to all.
To achieve this, we need your help to make our voice heard.
