Pledge to Walk Once a Day this Winter

Pledge to Walk Once a Day this Winter back to News

Paths for All is supporting people across Scotland to boost their health and wellbeing by walking every day this winter. The new campaign – Walk Once a Day this Winter – is inviting everyone to pledge to daily walking during the colder months to support their physical and mental wellbeing.

An online content hub has been created full of motivational ideas and advice to support all ages to be more active this December and January.

Research shows that half a million older people regularly experience periods of isolation, going at least five or six days a week without seeing or speaking to anyone. Getting out for a daily walk allows interaction with neighbours, others in the community and can create a sense of connection and community belonging, even while social distancing. Walking is also an easy way to keep physical active which helps the body fight infection and viruses.
