National Walking Month
May is National Walking Month!
We asked our clinic principle Mark McWilliam his thoughts on walking.
Working from home .. walk to work!
"Many people are still working from home either full or part time . It’s easy just to roll out of bed and fire up the computer and begin the day without much movement. Most people who I chat to in the clinic are glad they are not spending wasted hours sitting in traffic, however are they themselves wasting as a result of limited movement .
A recent study by Kirwin et al (2020) highlights the long term health effects on short term muscle loss that can occur as a result of us being stuck at home more. So what about the solution? Use the time you would have spent commuting, walking to work . Take a good brisk 20 minutes walk at the beginning and the end of your working day to help improve your physical and mental health.
If you are worried about muscle wastage, or the long term effects of inactivity on your health discuss this with your osteopath"
