Why Walk?

Walking benefits your health, confidence and pocket. Walking locally is a great way of meeting people, getting fresh air, saving money, and often saving time. Walking requires a little investment, possibly footwear/clothing but don't let that put you off. One of the many perks to walking is after a little practice you'll be exercising without noticing it while enjoying being outside and in the fresh air. For advice to help you get started please visit: www.getirelandwalking.ie

 

Research has shown that 30 minutes of moderately intense physical activity, 5 days a week, can help reduce the risk of chronic disease, type 2 diabetes and some cancers. Other benefits include increased self-confidence, lower levels of stress, improved sleep and enhanced well-being.

Strength in numbers

Our travel choices all add up. If everyone changed just one journey a week to healthier more sustainable travel, like walking, think of the difference that would make. This initiative has been established to inform and inspire, so that making the switch to healthier more sustainable forms of travel, like walking, becomes a little easier.

 

A Rewarding Travel Routine

At first, it may be difficult to change your travel pattern, to make more of your journeys by foot. After the initial leap it could take some getting used to. If you want to use your car a little less, Limerick Smarter Travel is here to let you know help is at hand, to remind you that the benefits to your health, well-being, pocket, and to the environment can last a lifetime.
