Benefits of walking
If you are thinking about taking up Walking as a new activity, there are many benefits to be had and there’s no better place to begin than on a caravan holiday in North Wales.
Walkers live longer – if you take up walking you improve your chances of a healthier and longer life
Walking helps to prevent gaining weight – 2000 steps is the approximate equivalent to about 1 mile and if you wear a pedometer to count your steps you will have extra motivation to achieve even more. Walking also gives you a “feel good” factor and the incentive to change your lifestyle for the better.
Walking reduces the risk of cancer, heart disease and stroke – studies have shown that you can reduce your risk of serious illness by walking, so get your blood moving.
Walking reduces Diabetes risk – walking for 30 minutes a day cuts diabetes risk for overweight people and it also helps to maintain blood sugar levels.
All you need is a pair of comfortable walking shoes, so open your caravan door, get out into the great outdoors and start walking on your Caravan Holiday in North Wales.!
