Although it is winter, it is still important if not even more important to ensure that you spend time outdoors as often as possible. Not only does reconnecting with nature help with feelings of anxiety, walking outdoors can help your body physically and help with things such as sleep problems and lethargy.
So, get your Aran sweaters out from Shamrock gift and have a look at some of the amazing places in your area where you can enjoy a walk – here are a few ideas to get you started…
Cornwall is full of wild countryside to enjoy – head to the north coast to enjoy the wild wintery sea, or inland the Cotehele estate on the edge of the river Tamar has plenty of woodland and riverside paths to enjoy. Explore the fantastic countryside surrounding the impressive Cotehele house and head further afield to see Cotehele mill.
Further north, in Shropshire you can walk the wintery and wild landscape of the Long Mynd where in 1865 the Reverend Carr was famously lost as he tried to walk across. He was found buried in the snow by some local children and miraculously saved from his ordeal as he was given soup in a local house.
North again, and to Scotland which is full of stunning winter wonderland locations to walk in. One of the favourite places for walks is Glencoe in the Highlands. Walk the shores of this stunning loch and enjoy the peace and quiet of the water and the scenery.
