A brisk outdoor activity such as walking is great for physical fitness and general well-being. The recommendation for adults is to build up to 30 minutes on at least five days of the week. This can be in two or three sessions.

Regular walking and cycling where you breathe more heavily than usual but are not out of breathe will:

  • Increase fitness
  • Reduce risk of diabetes and heart attacks
  • Help shed excess weight
  • Reduce stress and anxiety
  • Help you stay mobile and independent as you get older

When you're out enjoying the countryside, please follow the countryside code:

  • Consider other people
    Showing consideration and respect for other people makes the countryside a pleasant environment for everyone - at home, at work and at leisure.
  • Keep dogs under close control
    The countryside is a great place to exercise dogs, but it's every owner's duty to make sure their dog is not a danger or nuisance to farm animals, wildlife or other people.
  • Protect plants and animals and take your litter home
    We have a responsibility to protect our countryside now and for future generations, so make sure you don't harm animals, birds, plants or trees.
  • Be safe - Plan ahead and follow any signs
    Even when going out locally, its best to get the latest information about where and when you can go; for example, your rights to go onto some areas of open land may be restricted while work is carried out, for safety reasons or during breeding seasons. Follow advice and local signs and be prepared for the unexpected.
  • Leave gates and property as you find them
    Please respect the working life of the countryside, as our actions can affect people's livelihoods, our heritage and the safety and welfare of animals and ourselves.
