The desire to explore is inherent in all of us; it’s the part of you that yearns to be outside when you gaze out of the office window on a summer’s day or open the curtains at the weekend to reveal clear blue skies and streaming sunshine. It doesn’t matter whether you answer that call with a gentle stroll via a country pub on a Sunday afternoon, or a multi-day trek in the Brecon Beacons, the important thing is that you’re out there, experiencing the world around you, one step at a time.


It’s easy to feel hemmed in, especially if you spend most of your time in the city, but if you look at Britain from a bird’s eye view you’ll see just how much of it is still green and waiting to be discovered. Hiking is a great way to enjoy the world around you, and you’d be surprised at what’s available on your doorstep. Never underestimate the therapeutic value of ¬†fresh air in your lungs and the blood pumping through your veins; beautiful views, the refreshing sound of the wind blowing through the trees rather than the rumble of engines and the chance to step back, take a breath and remind yourself of what’s important.
