Did you know that a brisk 10 minute walk counts as exercise?


Data compiled by Public Health England found that more than 6.3 million adults aged 40 to 60 failed to achieve just 10 minutes of continuous brisk walking per month.

Just 10 minutes of brisk walking every day can benefit your health, improve the way you feel and reduce the risk of a number of long-term conditions such as heart disease and type 2 diabetes.

As part of their ongoing One You campaign, PHE has launched an app called Active 10, designed to encourage at least 10 minutes brisk walking a day

Active 10 quickly and simply shows you how many brisk 10 minute walks you’re doing and how to fit more into your day. Download it today to see how many Active 10s you’ve done.
