The summer is rolling ever closer towards the autumn, one of my favourite times of the year and along with it comes much kinder weather to enjoy a spot of walking.
Cooler days are more inviting for lengthy strolls and a fold up poncho to protect you against a splash of precipitation won’t take up too much room in a backpack, alongside a bottle of water for rehydration and a sweet snack in case you feel a bit flaky.
You don’t have to set a stiff pace for a walk but any exercise can be an incredibly powerful antidote to anxiety and stress and I imagine you are surrounded by more than your fair share of that at the moment.
Try to set yourself a goal of around half an hour to an hour of walking and if you’re able to expose your skin to a bit of sunlight, you’ll also absorb a bit of vitamin D at the same time. Natural sunlight has the ability to lift your spirits too and make you feel better, so grab a bit before the winter winds set in and walk your way towards a brighter future for your body and mind.
