thank you for joining us to #WALKTHISMAY!

May is living streets' National Walking Month... 

...when we celebrate the health and happiness benefits of walking and wheeling more.

Walking is one of the easiest ways to improve our health and stay connected to our community, helping us feel less lonely and isolated.

We've put together 20 tips to help you fit 20 minutes of walking into your day. From inviting friends for a walk to taking a post-work stroll, how many#Try20 tips can you do during National Walking Month and beyond? If you're not sure where to start, scroll down to give the wheel a spin!

Invite someone to #Try20 with you

Our new research shows that going for a walk is the nation's favourite Bank Holiday activity, as voted for by almost half of respondents.

However, well over a quarter of us would walk more if we had someone to walk with - and over a third of respondents said having someone to walk with would help them to feel less lonely and isolated.

So, why not invite someone to #Try20 with you this May!

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.
