Mental Health Tips


Walk Off Your Stress

Had a bad day? Feel stressed and tense? OK, so go and walk it off! Yep, it’s that easy.

Start off slowly, walk the first ten minutes at a gentle pace. Hold your head up, breath deeply and let your arms swing, letting your feet dictate the rhythm and pace.

Now that you are warmed up, find somewhere quiet and do a ham string stretch and a calf stretch, holding the stretch for a count of ten.

Now set off again for another 10 minutes but walk more purposefully this time. Again, hold your head up and swing your arms, looking straight ahead. Enjoy the air, the sights and sounds around you and try to let your mind relax.
