It's cold, it's dark and the excitement of Christmas is well and truly over for another year. It is no wonder that January can feel impact our mood massively. 

That's why this year we have decided to combat our January blues by focusing on leading a healthier lifestyle. 

On Saturday 19th January over 20 Nelson Trust supporters, volunteers, staff and four legged friends took part in a wellbeing walk across Minchinhampoton Common. 


The walk was a chance for continued and new supporters to meet some of the team in a relaxed environment whilst taking in the exquisite views we are so lucky to be based around. Studies prove that even a small walk everyday can elevate your mood, reduce depression and lower your stress level, in addition to helping your overall physical fitness. 



We were also treated to some tasty healthy snacks. Yoga instructor and chef Nafia handed out homemade energy balls whilst health food shop Shiny Goodness gifted pistachio flapjack bars. Take a look at their websites:

Thank you to everybody who came out even though the weather was certainly not on our sides! We are planning another walk for February and hope to see you there.
