We have walked to school for the last two weeks and i have notcied the following benefits:
- My back is better.... I had hurt it by lifting and twisting to strap heavy toddlers in and out of the car seats.
- I have lost weight!
- The children are more settled, it is a nice start to the day with a community feel as we wave to the lollipop people and call into the local shop for dessicated cocnut, milk, bread, lentils, sandpaper, whatever we need for the days activities or lunch.
I had my Change-4-life newsletter today through e-mail and it has a link to the 'lets all walk to school'campaign pages by Living Streets. They have posters that you can order through an e-mail address to put up to make your parents aware that you are encouraging walking to school! there is plenty more information on the site too.
