300 x 250 Walk to Wellbeing (large)

Mental Health Awareness Week is taking place on 14 – 20 May and in support of this, the Residence Life team would like to invite you to a Walk to Wellbeing!

Walking regularly is a great form of exercise, and it isn’t just good for your body – it’s great for your mind too!¬†Regular exercise will improve your mood and increase feelings of wellbeing – and it can even help relieve feeling of depression. Being outside in the fresh air has been linked to better mental wellbeing and reduced stress.¬†Walking can also be a social activity when done in a group or with friends, so it can help to tackle feelings of isolation or loneliness.

With this in mind, Residence Life wants to invite you to join us on a Walk to Wellbeing on Wednesday 16th May at 2pm meeting at The Edge Piazza on 34 Endcliffe Crescent, Sheffield, S10 3ED. The walk will begin at around 2.15pm following a safety briefing where you will be allocated a group leader.

The first part of the walk will be to Forge Dam where some of you may want to finish your walk.  Then part two of the walk will be from Forge Dam to Fox House and it is advisable that only the strongest walkers join us for this part of the walk. Then we can all catch the bus back to Ecclesall Road and make our own way home!
