Discover a world without walls this winter

A new year.  Time for new beginnings, new resolutions and new ambitions. But it’s all too easy to let the January blues take hold and slip back into old habits. Short days, cold temperatures and miserable weather can make putting your feet up in front of the TV with a takeaway far more tempting than pounding the treadmill or counting calories to lose those Christmas pounds. Before you know it you’re settled on the sofa, cake in hand, and your early resolve is a distant memory.

So why not do something different this year?

This winter forget diets, gyms and exercise plans. Daylight might be limited at this time of year but you don’t have to be. Why not steer clear of the screens and spend more time outside? Put down that phone, turn off the television and head to the woods to discover a world without walls. There are endless possibilities to what you can achieve out there in the woods, either on your own or with friends and family.

Tread a new path, watch the wide winter skies and reconnect with nature

Wrap up warm, breathe fresh, clean air and keep moving – you’ll find new horizons, feel healthier and happier and enjoy a wonderful sense of wellbeing.

Time spent in woodland will rejuvenate you physically and mentally. You’ll have chance to think, to talk, to plan. You’re detoxing with every breath, burning calories with every minute, clearing your mind with every step.
