We all need exercise.  However, certain types of exercise are better than others.  swimming for example gives an all over body work out and it also exercisers your internal organs.  However, one of the best and most relaxing forms of exercise is walking.  It also means you don’t have to worry about wearing swimsuits and  using towels.  One thing you will need if you are going to become a serious Walker is a map. Walking Maps from https://www.themapshop.co.uk/Explorer_Walking_Maps.htm Offer you the perfect detailed guide to some of the best walks in Britain and Northern Ireland.

The physical benefits are well documented.  The longest sustained period of exercise like a walk can have more long-term benefits and short sharp runs and lapped swims.  Another important consideration to take in about walking is that it is also excellent for your mental health.  In these difficult times mental wellbeing is just as important to focus on as physical well-being.

Also walking is a lot more fun!  You can get to see some incredible sights around the country and have  a social aspect if you join a rambling group or organisation.  You will need a bit of kit such as an all-weather jacket  and some decent walking shoes or boots.  a walking pole or even two walking poles wouldn’t go amiss either.  They are great at reducing the shock to the knees.
