So it felt like the perfect time to feature a bumper section on walking – that and the fact May is also National Walking Month! At Top Santé we’ve long championed walking as it’s such a fantastic, effective way to boost your health from head to toe.

Friluftsliv is a concept that’s engrained in the Nordic way of life from childhood onwards. ‘Put simply, it means doing something outdoors. This could be walking in the forest with a picnic, enjoying a small fika (coffee and cake) break in the open air or doing something more organised such as walking…
