Before you start:

If you're walking to work, you could wear your usual work clothes with a comfy pair of shoes and change shoes when you get into work.

Make sure you wear any shoes or trainers that are comfortable, provide adequate support and do not cause blisters.

For long walks, you may want to take some water, healthy snacks, and a spare top. In the summer pack sunscreen and a sun hat in a small backpack.

If you are going to walk during winter make sure you wear warm clothes and shoes with good grip. Beware of icy conditions at all times.
