Good Luck.
Research has found that 25 per cent of British people walk for less than one hour each week. That's just nine minutes day. Another 43 per cent walked for less than two hours per week. This research suggests people need to do more exercise. British government recommends 150 minutes of physical activity every week. Most British people are doing less than this. research is from an online survey of 2,021 adults. People answered questions about how far they walked week. This included walking to work, schools or to local shops. Increasing numbers of people are using their cars instead of their feet, and playing games on video and computer screens rather than in sports centres and parks.

Britain's largest walking charity said research showed that there was 'inactivity pandemic' in Britain. More and more people are avoiding any physical exercise. charity said: “Walking is key to helping reverse this pandemic of inactivity." It added: “We want people all over Britain to join walking revolution….Walking is one of most accessible and achievable ways to truly conquer this inactivity." Politician Diane Abbott said research was ‘worrying’ indication of nation’s health. She said: "We need to plan activity into way buildings are designed. first thing you see in building is often lift [elevator], then you have to look for stairs. It should be other way around."
