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.

iFootpath and DogWalksYorkshire Become One

iFootpath and DogWalksYorkshire Become One

iFootpath is pleased to announce that it is now the proud owner of another excellent walking website, DogWalksYorkshire. As current iFootpath customers know, our mission in life is to make walking accessible, fun and stress-free for seasoned walkers and newcomers alike. When we first came across the DogWalksYorkshire website we were pleased to find like-minded folk with a similar ethos, albeit specifically aimed at dog walkers in Yorkshire. When we learned that the current DogWalksYorkshire team were looking to pass on the baton to someone that could take their website forward, we were pleased to step up and offer to do just that.

It is an often under-estimated condition, but those that suffer will know all too well that is can be extremely debilitating and turn a bright sunny day into a miserable one.

Go Wild and Get Happy

Go Wild and Get Happy

Walking is good for you. Seasoned walkers will tell you this time and time again, but it’s nice to have it confirmed by scientific studies from time to time. The latest evidence comes from The Wildlife Trusts via an impact study of its 30 Days Wild campaign. The UK’s first month-long nature challenge saw sustained increases in participants’ happiness and health through connections with nature such as feeding the birds and countryside walks.

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.
