Want a Longer Life? Get Walking!

If you want to live a long and healthy life (and who doesn’t?), walking should be on the top of your priority list (even if you suffer from back pain!). According to our London chiropractor, regular walking can not only boost your overall health and fitness, but help to manage existing back pain and reduce the risk of future episodes of pain.

So why not get outdoors at lunchtime or hop off the tune or bus a few stops early and walk the rest of the way. Take advantage of some of the great walking routes around Holborn and Covent Garden and take in the sights at the same time.

Covent Garden offers a fascinating circular route that takes you through the famous theatre district and through beautiful courtyards. You’ll even be able to make a stop at the Opera House before returning near the River Thames.

You can also travel down London’s memory lane by taking a walk between Temple and Fleet Street. Home to incredible buildings that survived the Great London Fire, this historic route takes you to one of Charles Dickens’ favourite walking hot-spots and the settings of some of his greatest novels.

With so many interesting sites to see, you probably won’t even notice that you’re doing any exercise at all! Your health, on the other hand, is sure to benefit.
