More people might consider heading out for a walk this weekend, as a new survey shows over two-thirds of Brits feel that they do not make enough of their free time. Research conducted by VisitEngland shows that 68 per cent of people believe that they waste too much of their time off. This is despite the fact that 78 per cent of people say that making the most of their weekend puts them in a better mood for the working week. VisitEngland is launching a new campaign to encourage Brits to explore the country more by getting people to share what they would do to make the most of one minute. People are being asked to upload a one-minute-long video to the VisitEngland website for the chance to win a 10,000-minute-long holiday. Amanda Smyth, head of marketing for VisitEngland, explained: "We're hoping to inspire people to get out and about in England and discover the hundreds of experiences you can have in this country from sailing on a pirate ship near Brixham to a horse riding adventure in the New Forest." Those looking for the ideal place to take a hike may consider heading to the coastal area of the Lake District. Charlotte Crosby, publications coordinator for the Lake District National Park Authority, said that the 20-mile stretch of coast was one of the region's best kept secrets.
