Physical inactivity is a major cause of disease and disability for adults in the UK. To help combat inactivity in adults, the One You Campaign is introducing One You Active 10 where you are encouraged to increase physical activity by simply walking briskly for 10 continuous minutes or more every day. This will get your heart pumping and can make you feel better, more energetic and improve mood. Over time, it can help lower the risk of serious illnesses such as heart disease and Type 2 diabetes. Whether you’re walking to work, stepping out at lunchtime, walking to the shops or local park or taking the dog for a walk, there are lots of ways you can fit ten minutes of brisk walking into your life. You don’t have to go to the gym, wear sportswear or start expensive fitness programmes to get the benefits of an active lifestyle, walking counts too.
