Walking is a great way to explore the City of Belmont and enjoy a range of important health benefits. Here are some tips to help you get started:
- Make walking part of your daily routine by finding a place and time which suits you;
- To help you stay motivated, you could walk with your dog, friend, family or even join a walking group;
- Try different walks, use a pedometer or take a portable media player with you to enjoy music, a podcast or an audiobook as you walk;
Set yourself realistic goals and reward yourself.
