As a trusted Stoke on Trent chiropractor, we can’t stress enough the enormous health benefits of walking. But, while most of us know that walking is one of the best (and cheapest!) forms of physical exercise; we still don’t do it enough, apparently!
Recent research from BUPA reveals that the average person in the UK walks for only ten minutes a day, despite medical professionals advising that we walk for at least 30 minutes daily. But why is it that we Brits seem to take a step back from walking? Is it the typical terrible British weather? Or perhaps our busy schedules prevent us from walking as much as we’d like… According to BUPA, it’s both these things, and more.
Here are the top five excuses people gave for not walking enough:
1: Bad weather (31%)
2: Lack of time (26%)
3: Being unfit (12%)
4: Feeling unsafe (11%)
5: Tiredness (11%)
Our Stoke on Trent chiropractor advises that while we all have justifiable reasons not to walk enough, the health benefits of walking just for 30 minutes are big enough reasons to do it.
