A recent eye-opening study* has found that the benefits a walk in the countryside can boost your mental wellbeing for up to seven hours.
Ahead of National Stress Awareness Day on Wednesday 7th November, HF Holidays has announced its new 2019 Outdoor Escape weekends, allowing people to shake off the hustle and bustle of working life for a relaxing few days exploring the UK’s picturesque destinations.
The award-winning holiday provider knows all about the impact of walking on mental health and recently nominated Mind as their charity of the year.
Steve Backhouse, Head of Holidays at HF Holidays, said: “Everyone knows the physical benefits of a nice long walk, but the mental boost it gives you can be just as important. Stepping out into the great outdoors and stretching your legs whilst you soak up the sights and sounds of the British countryside is the perfect way to unwind and relax over the short space of a weekend.”
