Walk to work week
11 May 2015 - 15 May 2015
Walk to Work Week is here. Waltham Forest Council is encouraging its employees to swap their usual commute for a cheaper and healthier option this Walk to Work Week and travel all or some of their journey to work on foot.
Walk to Work Week (11-15 May) is an opportunity for employees across the UK to make walking part of their commute. Along with Walk to School Week (18 -22 May), Walk to Work Week forms a part of National Walking Month, a month dedicated to celebrating the health benefits of walking.
Walking for just half an hour each day can transform your fitness levels, reduce stress, and vastly improve your concentration levels for the day ahead. With stress being the biggest cause of work place absence, a walk to and from work or a lunchtime stroll can make all the difference to employee wellbeing. Physically active employees are also less likely to take sickness leave.
Whether you choose to walk all or part of the journey to work, stepping out of the office for a lunchtime walk, or getting off the bus a few stops earlier on your way home, walking is a free and easy way to work more exercise into your daily routine.
