Treat yourself to a good walk!

Treat Me Right! Co-ordinator Helen Cairns is looking forward to shaking off the January blues on a good walk with some interesting people.

January always seems a bit of a bleak month. The festivities are over and perhaps we’ve over-indulged on rich food and spent too much time snuggling up on the sofa. It can feel like the worst time to exercise – its cold outside and we’re feeling sluggish.

Treat Me Right! may have just the solution. As part of our Health Buddies programme we’re starting a walking group and our first walk will take place on Sunday January 15 starting at 11am from the Lido Centre in West Ealing on Mattock Lane, W13 9LA.

Walking is an easy way to get fit and great opportunity to meet new people and get out into the community. According to the NHS Livewell website  “Walking is simple, free and one of the easiest ways to get more active, lose weight and become healthier”.

Our walk will be designed to suit all abilities and we’re looking forward to welcoming people from all across the local community. Walking with other people is great fun as you just chat to each other and barely notice you’re exercising! And as an extra little incentive the group will be heading off for a healthy lunch afterwards so bring some money if you want to come along.

So come on! Put on some comfy shoes, wrap up warm and kick start your fitness plan with Treat Me Right. Any questions just email treatmeright@certitude.org.uk or ring 020 3397 3041 and ask for Helen or Barry.
