National Walking Month Time To Get Out And Enjoy The Outdoors

You can walk anywhere and everywhere ( just so long as you're not trespassing !) I enjoy walking in all sorts of places be in from cities to countryside , you'd be surprised that walking in cities can be relaxing as often there are hidden green oasises.


May is National Walking Month. National Walking Month is a campaign to promote the benefits of walking and to get everyone walking, no matter what your level of fitness is.  Walking is simple and free and one of the easiest ways to be more active, lose weight and become healthy. And as we've a teenager going to university we will be saving money as parents as the teen will be stopping on campus and he'll will be walking everywhere to ! - bonus.


A 20 minute walk can boost your mood and as I suffer from depression and anxiety I truely believe in getting out there and exploring , I love being an intrepid explorer, I always view places as I'm the first person to ever set foot there. 

I love the challenge of my environment and varying where I walk from flat places to those with more of an incline as this is helpung increasing my stamina. You don't need fancy equipment to start walking just make sure your footwear is applicable for the surface/area you're going to be walking and decent socks ( especially if you're going to be strolling over hill and dale)


So once this month is over I urge you to keep walking and why not take your camera with you , this is something I love to do . You'll see this in particular from my Instagram I find it a wonderful visual prompt esoecially if I'm feeling down in the dumps.


  1. Lovely photos! I agree walking outdoors is so important for well being, even just 10 minutes during my lunch break will lift my mood.
