About the Event
Walking in nature can boost your mood and improve mental health. Spending quality time hiking in the forest reduces stress, calms anxiety, and can lead to a lower risk of depression, according to a study done by researchers at Stanford University. This six week hiking group will combine hiking with weekly mental health and wellbeing topics such as the power of positive psychology, the science of happiness and engaging practice that will provide a break from the feeling of always being ‘switched-on’.
Participants must be…
- 15 and older
- Comfortable hiking at a slow to moderate pace on uneven terrain which may potentially be snow-covered
- Open to healthy connection and social interaction
- Learning about topics relating to psychological wellness as well as mindfulness, healthy social interaction, building relationships, the human relationship with the natural world, communication skills, etc. Each week will have a theme.
