HEALTHY BEHAVIOUR CHANGE, LIFESTYLE IMPROVEMENT AND WELLNESS.

Our Wilderness Wellbeing Walks will help you re-programme yourself so that you feel at one with nature and improve both your mental and physical wellbeing. We work with all ranges of fitness levels and plan our programmes according to the ability of the group.  The group walk encourages time for solitude, thought and a time for positive reflection. The beauty of working in nature and the outdoors is that we have time to work through the issues that come up for you in the moment.

It's easy to stop noticing the world around us. It's also easy to get caught up in our thoughts without stopping to notice how those thoughts are driving our emotions and behaviour.

 

An important part of mindfulness is reconnecting with our bodies and the sensations they experience. This means waking up to the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of the present moment and what better way to do this than a walk in nature.

Our walks promote good mental wellbeing, enabling you to:

  • Feel relatively confident and have positive self-esteem   

  • Removing negative or self-limiting beliefs. 

  • Feel and express a range of emotions.

  • Reducing stress and anxiety and feeling generally calmer and more in control of life. 

  • Increasing confidence and self-esteem. 

  • Create a positive, focused & productive mind-set, achieving better results in all areas of life.

  • Feel happier, more engaged and enthusiastic. 

  • Feel engaged with the world around you. 

  • Increasing the ability to listen and communicate effectively.

  • Adapt and manage in times of change and uncertainty.

Our instructional staff will make the programme challenging and rewarding. The sessions will be light, humorous and energising. At the same time it will be difficult and challenging involving difficult questions and looking around for alternative perspectives. It can also provide some solace while at the same time evoking individuals to move forwards. Our staff are experienced in stretching comfort zones to enable people to learn about themselves mentally and physically.
