Sponsored Walk and Mental Health
A good walk can do wonders for your emotional wellbeing.
It is nearly time for our annual sponsored walk, so how does completing this walk impact on your emotional wellbeing?
Walking keeps our bodies and minds healthy, giving us a breather from the stresses of daily life and the space to gather our thoughts
Being active 🏃🏻♂️ – walking has a whole range of benefits when it comes to emotional wellbeing. It improves self-perception and self-esteem, mood and sleep quality, and it reduces stress, anxiety and fatigue
Brain function 🧠- walking through woods or green area with trees has been found to aid memory and learning and also improve short term memory.
Socialising 💬- What better time is there to talk to people, walking and talking come very naturally together and walking in a group can make you feel more connected to each other, reducing loneliness and isolation.
Sense of achievement 🏆- With every stride you take and every pound you raise, you can help our chosen charity.
