A Bit Too Green and Pleasant?

A Bit Too Green and Pleasant?

May and June are my favourite walking months, not least because it is the greenest time of the year. But this year, with ideal growing conditions for nettles and the like, it seems things might be just a bit too green and pleasant out there…

Walking Benefits…Don’t Let Work Get in the Way

We all experience pressures on our time, including at work, and it is easy to let this get in the way of our health and wellbeing.

Westfield Health explores the benefits of walking and provides some tips for fitting a little more motion into your working day…

Celebrate Nature…June is Great Outdoors Month

Celebrate Nature…June is Great Outdoors Month

If you love getting out and about and enjoying yourself, Great Outdoors Month is the perfect month for you! It’s an ideal opportunity to teach children about the joy of playing outside and how getting out and about can be part of a healthy lifestyle. Getting out and about is often a free or cheap day out for families, and can be a lot of fun. It’s a great way to learn about nature and the environment, to de-stress and to improve your mental and physical well-being.

Walking with a Spring in your Step

Walking with a Spring in your Step

We may have had a topsy-turvy winter, warm and wet one day then cold and windy the next, but Mother Nature is not one to let that stand in her way. There’s no denying that spring is waiting just around the corner. With flowers erupting through the woodland floor and the dawn chorus building from the tree tops, spring is starting to take hold. Spring is the season when nature bursts back into life in an explosion of sight, sound and colour. What better invitation to get out and explore?

Celebrate Love Your Pet Day with a Special Walk

Celebrate Love Your Pet Day with a Special Walk

Love Your Pet Day is celebrated every year on 20 February. It’s easy to get caught up in all life throws at us…working, commuting, school runs, visiting relatives, housework and gardening. Sometimes our pets get a little lonely when we are busy doing other things in our lives. So Love Your Pet Day is one day when we are reminded to spend more quality time with our furry friends. And if that furry friend is a dog, then a special walk might be just the ticket.
