Walk East for Health and Wellbeing

Taking regular, brisk walks can do wonders for your health and wellbeing. On a Walk East health walk, you're taking a proactive approach towards managing your physical health and keeping in shape. And walking can help your mental wellbeing too, by reducing stress and improving your mood and self-esteem.

Walk East projects are design to help your group:

  • Reduce your health risks – a regular, 30-minute walk can help control your weight, and reduce the risk of diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, strokes, cancer and high blood pressure.
  • Lift your spirits – walking is one of nature's best anti-depressants, it will help you de-stress, take stock and think through future projects.
  • Take a break from work – workplace walks can help boost your team's productivity and motivation, reduce absence rates and encourage colleagues to socialise away from the workplace.

We can devise and lead a tailor-made walk programme from your centre, surgery, school or workplace. So if you’d like to give your health a boost and put a spring in your step, get in touch.
