Keep On Walking: Why You Should Be Walking All Year Round

Walking is one of the most accessible and inexpensive ways to boost your physical and mental health, and a great way to explore the outdoors. Every season brings its own unique beauty and can completely change even the most familiar landscapes, so there's no reason not to pull on your walking boots and get outdoors in any weather.

Shake off the cobwebs and enjoy idyllic views of the countryside after its winter slumber. Enjoy golden daffodils and budding snowdrops, new green leaves and the first glimpses of summer sunshine in woodland, riverside and coastal settings alike.

Summer

Summer is the time for microadventures, weekend camping and wild swimming while soaking up essential doses of Vitamin D. UVB rays from sunlight have huge health benefits, including hormone regulation, bone health, mood enhancement and immunity boosting – just remember to be careful of how much sun exposure you get, and to always bring suncream on your adventures to top up throughout the day.

Autumn

September to November is the perfect time for a stunning walk admiring Autumn's brilliant spectrum of colours, from crimson-streaked skies to rust-coloured blankets of leaves. It’s also the time to see some of nature's dramatic phenomena,  including the clashing antlers of the autumn deer rut, flurries of migrating birds, and the rare chance to see red squirrels as they gather nuts for winter.

Winter

Avoid the temptation to hibernate through winter and experience all it has to offer instead. Dustings of shimmering frost, clear skies and peaceful silence all await you as the brave the chill - and nothing beats a mulled cider beside the fire in a country pub after a bracing winter walk!
