Don’t let a bit of bad weather put you off if you’re trying to get more active.

Here are some useful tips for getting outside in the colder and wetter months:

Layer up

Many walkers wear a base layer, followed by a fleece/sweater, and a waterproof jacket. Don’t forget to wear a hat, gloves, and thick socks too.

Best footwear forward

Choose shoes with good traction to prevent slips and falls on snow, ice or wet surfaces. Waterproof boots can make a big difference to comfort.

Keep sipping

Staying hydrated is just as important in winter as summer, even if you don’t feel so thirsty. Carry a water bottle and take small sips throughout your walk.

Have a backup plan
