10 brisk minutes
Summer is the perfect time to be more active. And a brisk 10 minute walk every day is a great excuse to get outside and improve your health. Each 10 minute burst of exercise is known as an “Active 10”.
Brisk walking is simply walking quicker than usual at a pace that gets your heart pumping. Start with a 10 minute brisk walk a day and then see if you can gradually build up to more.
You could walk part of your journey home, pop to the shops on foot, or get some fresh air in the evening sunshine. No gym memberships, no brightly coloured Lycra. Just 10 minutes and you!
