Walking - Even the smallest effort can improve your quality of life and make you feel healthier and livelier. As walking is a very good exercise which most people are able to do, and don’t need special equipment for, then why not get started on your fitness campaign. Simply start by walking for 15 or 20 minutes at a brisk enough pace to get your heart beating faster, 3 times a week regularly. When you can easily walk for an hour you are ready to move on to swimming, cycling or running!

Healthy eating - A healthy diet doesn’t need to be a boring one. Health experts tell us we are all eating too much fat, salt etc, but what exactly does this mean? For help with a healthier lifestyle please see the links below :
