The Daily Mile is an initiative that encourages people to walk or run for 15 minutes every day to improve their physical, social, emotional and mental health.
Following on from the huge success of the Daily Mile in Scotland’s schools, NHSGGC has teamed up with the Scottish Government to make Scotland a ‘Daily Mile Nation.’
Why not commit to getting more active and feeling the benefits? Pledge to try and walk or run your Daily Mile five times a week. Each month we will get in touch with everyone who pledges to find out how you’ve got on / how we can help you to do more and we’ll select one of you at random to win a prize!
To pledge to walk / run your Daily Mile five times a week enter your email address below and tell us what you hope to get out of doing The Daily Mile!*
* By pledging you are opting in to having your information stored securely by the Health Improvement team in NHSGGC and to being contacted by email about The Daily Mile and other Active Staff activities. Your information will not be shared with any other parties.
To help you take the first step on your Daily Mile we've produced leaflets for all our main hospital sites. These leaflets contain maps with points of interest around the sites that could be visited within a 15-20 minute walk. Click on the relevant link below to get started or look out for the leaflets around your site.
We've set up a group with our friends at World Walking where we'll be tracking our miles and seeing what destinations we can (virtually) reach. To join the group for free and add your miles to the total visit www.worldwalking.org/groups/fr7k3
