We are taking part in Walktober!

Hampshire County Council have themed “Walktober” around the NHS’s “Five Steps to Wellbeing”. Evidence suggests that these are five steps we can all take to improve our mental wellbeing:
  • Connect– Have a fun day out, walking with family and friends, playing games together on your walk and collecting up treasures from nature to take home with you
  • Be active– Make activity part of your everyday – walk, cycle, scoot or Park and Stride to school or work, go for a lunchtime stroll, play ball in the park or walk a friend’s dog with them
  • Keep learning– Go for a walk somewhere you haven’t been before, perhaps around a park, garden or historical site
  • Be mindful– Think about your surroundings during your walk and be at one with nature
  • Give to others– Take a friend for a walk, volunteer at a local garden or do a sponsored walk for charity.

Look out for your challenge cards, which will be sent home soon! Let's get ready for walking to wellbeing.
