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

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