Ever felt like you would like to: get out and about more often? Get a little more fresh air? Be more active?
Walking can improve your health and your happiness. For lots of our walkers, sharing stories, having a laugh and making friends is just as important as feeling healthy and getting in shape.
Cancer and its treatments can cause a range of side effects, including fatigue, stress and anxiety, bone-thinning and heart problems. Physical activity, including walking is a fantastic way to manage and even prevent these.
Regular physical exercise also has a potential role in reducing the risk of recurrence and increasing survival rates.
During and after treatment it is recommended that people try to reduce the amount of time they spend resting or sitting. Just moving about can prevent blood clots, reduce muscle wasting and improve mood.
Lyndale Ramblers meet monthly. We plan both local walks and some as far afield as the Lake District, Yorkshire, North Wales and Cheshire.
Our walks are open to people with a cancer diagnosis and to their carers, together with Lyndale volunteers – we aim to keep them healthy as well!
If you are fit enough to walk 3-4 miles with only gentle inclines and would like to join us, get in touch with us on 0151 489 3538 or call in at our centre.
We look forward to hearing from you.
