The beauty of a lunchtime walk is your challenge for week 2 of Walking Works...

Hope you lived up to last week’s challenge and gave a walking meeting a go. It would be good to see more of us doing these and making them part of our meeting culture.

Challenge for week 2: Lunchtime walk!

If your commute has changed to just travelling from your bedroom to your kitchen table on a morning or you’re now driving into work instead of walking for the bus/train, you might be missing out on those valuable minutes of exercise that really add up. Why not use your lunchbreak as a chance to go for a walk?

You’ll arrive back feeling more alert and ready for the afternoon ahead. It would be great if everyone could get out for a least one lunchtime walk this week. Let your colleagues know how you feel afterwards!

Don’t forget to pledge

If you haven’t already, take a pledge to walk more. It will help keep you motivated and moving. Visit livingstreets.org.uk/pledge

And remember, everyone that makes a pledge will be entered into a prize draw with the chance to win one of 2 x Living Streets Goody Bags! (Ts&Cs apply – available on request).

Living Streets, the charity behind Walking Works, would love to see pictures of people participating in lunchtime walks. Share your photos or comments on Twitter or Instagram using #WalkingWorks @LivingStreets

And don’t forget you double up the gains by getting involved with the Step Up Challenge; sign ups run until end of April and you can choose one of 3 new amazing routes to virtually walk either alone or with a team. Every mile you walk for Walking Works can be used for the Step Up Challenge too!
