May is National Walking Month! So now that the evenings are lighter for longer, and the weather is much more pleasant, it makes for the perfect time to get outside and get walking. Many people during National Walking Month sponsor themselves in this month to raise money for charities such as the BHF (British Heart Foundation). This is because it is an easy way to raise money to these charities that are involved with our health. After all, we all need a good way to de-stress ourselves after a long hard day of work, this is why walking is so good for you, it can make you happy as it makes you feel energised and refreshed.
