Here at the Trust we’re proud to support This Girl Can, encouraging women everywhere to down tools and go for a walk at lunchtime.
How often on your commute home do you wish you had got out of the office at lunchtime?
Fresh air, exercise and the chance to get close to nature are a fantastic way to clear your head and revive yourself for the afternoon. Plus, there are some well-known physical health benefits associated with walking, such as reduced risk of coronary heart disease, cancer, stroke, and Type 2 diabetes.
With 2,000 miles of canals and rivers threading through England and Wales, we know that lots of you work within easy reach of our tranquil towpaths. If you're not sure, take a look at our waterway map. Within minutes you could leave the busy world of the office behind you, watch the boats, enjoy the ripples on the water and feel ready for whatever the afternoon has in store.
What are you waiting for? Reclaim your lunchtime and put a slot in your calendar to remind yourself to get up and go. You’ll find the calm, traffic-free and welcoming atmosphere of our canals and rivers helps you put your best foot forwards.
Don't forget to join the buzz on social media and share your local walk with us. Tag us on Twitter and Instagram @CanalRiverTrust and don’t forget to use the hashtags #ThisGirlCan and #LifesBetterByWater.
