No where to walk to near your workplace? We made it fun and set simple achievable lunchtime walking goalposts. One was simply - touch the pole. We walk around 15 minutes to touch the pole and walk back. It is a simple walk and safe as there is a shared path along that side of the road. Our workplace is in the middle of an industrial area, with no shops, parks or places to go.
It is important to get active during the day and fit in a walk when you can, especially when you have a sedentary computer based job. The Heart Foundation provides assistance to individuals and walking groups. I have noticed others using the paths more in our area. Some walk and others ride. Once you start activating the area, so many others think that it is a good idea too. It takes just one or two to start the movement.
