28 Winter Wellbeing Activities | AD
This winter, Thrive are supporting health and wellbeing with a 28-day calendar of activities for people to join in with this winter. The calendar is full of excellent ideas for enjoying the season and getting outdoors to enjoy some daylight, fresh air, and a healthy dose of Vitamin D.
Thrive is passionate about the health and wellbeing benefits of gardening and time spent in nature and know how challenging it can be for many people to get outdoors during the dark and cold winter season. This, in turn, can have a negative effect on people’s mental health and wellbeing. To support and encourage people to go out in nature throughout winter, they created this calendar of activities to join in with.
It’s a great tool to use if you need some inspiration, a challenge, or are just looking for a bit of variety. The 28 days can be started at any date that suits you and, if you want to, you can simply choose activities that you want to do – there’s no pressure to do them all, of course.
The activities are suitable for anyone, no matter what garden space you have (or without a garden at all) or level of gardening skill. There is a mix of practical, passive, active and creative activities. Some can be done indoors, others outdoors and most of the activities need little to no equipment. You can find more details about the calendar and the different activities on the Thrive website here.
By the end of 28 days, or however many days you choose to do, you will most likely have increased your time with nature and can feel and appreciate the benefits of spending more time outdoors.
