Simon Barnett of Ramblers, Britain's walking charity that promotes walking for health and pleasure, said: "Most of us will have over indulged during the festive period and many of us will make resolutions to get more active in the New Year, but our good intentions often fall by the wayside."

"Stepping out for a walk is a cheap and fun way to achieve the recommended 150 minutes of physical activity a week. You can enjoy all the beautiful scenery Britain has to offer and by chatting whilst you walk, you soon forget that you're doing exercise."

"Walking is especially great if you're new to exercise, as it's gentle and can be built up slowly. So forget about the expensive gym memberships and make a resolution you can stick to in 2014: Get walking," added Barnett.

One can try a group walk.

Also as your fitness improves, challenge yourself to longer walks. Stay motivated by setting yourself achievable goals.

Try to incorporate walking into your day-to-day life. That way, walking becomes a natural activity you do all the time.
