It is common to suffer from low mood during the winter months. The long sunny summer days are behind us and as the days become shorter and darker this has a huge effect on our bodies and our brains.
A great way to combat this feeling during the darker months is to get out of doors as much as possible. In the UK there are loads of places that are particularly beautiful in the winter, where you can enjoy a walk and let the beauty of the natural world calm your mind.
Of course, during the winter it is wise to wrap up warm – for cosy aran sweaters visit shamrockgift, and it is a good idea to make yourself a flask of something warm like tea to keep you hydrated and heated!
Here are some great walks that are perfect for getting out and about during the winter months…
The Yorkshire Dales – This gorgeous part of the country is spectacular in the winter. Explore the beautiful dales and see the wildlife that lives here, and if you are feeling up to it, climb the Yorkshire Matterhorn for views across Yorkshire’s wintery moors that will take your breath away.
The Forest of Dean – The woodlands are beautiful in the winter months, and the forest of dean is a really great place to enjoy a wintery woodland walk. The sculpture trail will please both kids and adults and Soudley Ponds is a beautiful place to enjoy the winter forests.
