World Mental Health Day - 10th October 2018

Happy Camping and Hiking!

Did you know:

A recent study has shown that individuals at a greater risk of developing mental health issues including anxiety or depression will benefit greatly from spending time outdoors – outdoors is becoming the new indoors!

For example, undertaking a short, brisk stroll, apart from burning up to 2000 calories per hour, can leave a positive mark on one’s mood for up to 7 hours – certainly a step in the right direction! Exercise releases mind positive endorphins, improves self-perception and self-esteem, so what else is left to mention apart from its time to lace up your walking boots and take a hike!

Also, why not think outside the tent and incorporate a selection of nature rambles into a budget crunching camping adventure to replenish one’s batteries.

Resting under the stars after a wholesome day of natural daylight (the perfect ingredient for producing the sleep regulating hormone Melatonin), will set your internal clock back onto the right path after being knocked off course by technology and the daily stresses of life.

Camping has limitless advantages for both physical and mental health:

  • Eating healthier, wholesome foods made with more natural ingredients
  • Increased level of oxygen which produces more brain chemical Serotonin
  • Increased level of Vitamin D
  • Gaining rewarding skills of self-reliance and teamwork
  • Undertaking physical activities (physically active people have up to 30% reduced risk of suffering from depression)

So, for peace of mind, why not get suited and booted and let camping blow your mind! Visit for a list of local walking routes that you can enjoy as either a solo strider or family.
