Tip 12 – treat yourself

Listening to music or a podcast as you stroll can help you switch off, which is  why it's one of our #Try20 tips. 

Why not create your own 20-minute playlist? Here’s one we created to inspire you... 

  • Walk This Way, Run DMC and Aerosmith
  • Walking on Sunshine, Katrina and the Waves
  • Walk on the Wild Side, Lou Reed
  • Walking on Broken Glass, Annie Lennox
  • I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles), The Proclaimers

Don't forget to be mindful of your surroundings and other people when you're wearing headphones on a walk. Happy listening! 


The magic of walking

If you'd rather take in the sights and sounds of your walk, treat yourself to a mindful meander (Try 20 tip number 15).

A solo stroll (or a walk with friends or family) can be a great way to unwind and connect with our environment. When you walk more, you’re likely to feel healthier and happier as a result.
