Walking is something considered a hobby or enjoyment activity by millions around the world and is something which can be undertaken for a large majority of reasons. Some enjoy walking in the countryside as a way to spend quality time with friends and family and some prefer to take a walk down the local canal as a way to keep fit. Whatever the reason for taking an enjoyable long walk, it is definitely something enjoyed by a large percentage of the population.
Take yourself off to the Lake District, Peak District or Yorkshire Dales for a short break for a number of walks through the hills and forests or simply take a regular walk down the local canal or along a local river. It is a perfect way to relax after a long and stressful week at work and also to spend time with loved ones in an evening or at a weekend.
You don’t need any specialist equipment to go walking however packing up your lunch and a flask of coffee is sure to keep you going for the full day and will save the hassle of trying to find a cafe or snack bar in the middle of nowhere.
If you’ve never been for a walk in the countryside, for whatever reason that may be, try it and it is almost certainly guaranteed you’ll be left wondering why you’ve always stuck to the local walks in the past. If it’s for health benefits that you enjoy taking a walk, try walking to work as opposed to taking the car and you’ll be surprised how good you feel after doing so for a week or more.
