Dementia research published in The Lancet recently suggests that attention to optimum health early in life might benefit cognitive health late in life.
Inactivity is a risk factor for dementia.
Yet walking to school or work is a simple way to build more activity into our every-day routines.
Walking is good for mental health as well as physical health.
Making one small change to our day can have a huge impact on our lives.
Living Streets organises the nationwide Walk to School and Walk to Work weeks, as well as the well-established National Walking Month in May.
