The simplest way to see how walking can make you feel better is to walk out your front door and get going. You can set the pace and length to suit yourself: Remember to start out gently - build up the pace and length gradually as your body gets used to exercise.
When you've proven to yourself that you can do it - and that it makes you feel good - then the trick is to make time for a walk in your daily life. Our quick guide called Walking Tips is packed full of ideas to help with this, and to make sure you have an enjoyable, comfortable and safe walk.
As you start to feel more confident, or if you would like to walk with others, then read our quick guide to Getting Walking. It contains information on how to find walking routes, walking groups and walking events in your area. If you want to dive in, you can also go to our Support Near You page to start looking for ideas.
