Blue Monday is a day to highlight the importance of prioritising our mental health and wellbeing.

It is a day to acknowledge the struggle that some people face with feelings of sadness and depression, especially during these long winter months.

Did you know that just 15 minutes in nature can improve your mental health?*

The power of parks

Getting out in nature can boost endorphins - our feel good hormones, giving us the perfect opportunity slow down and reconnect.

Our parks provide the perfect environment to help boost wellbeing this winter, and whats more, they are free! So wrap up, get outside, and feel that crisp winter air.

Why not ...

  • Take advantage of daylight hours, get out in nature and go for a small lunchtime stroll.
  • Get a warm drink, go to your local park with your latest book and take a seat on a bench.
  • Take a walk with your favourite podcast or playlist.
  • Working from home? Take a walk around your local park at the start and/or end of the day.
  • Catch up with friends with a walk around your favourite park.
  • Find a new park of green space to explore.
