‘SO MUCH JUST BY WALK­ING!’

Country Walking Magazine (UK) - - #walk1000miles Update -

Julie Adams, 46, Lon­don At the start of this chal­lenge it was hard just step­ping out the front door – I’m a suf­ferer of PTSD and de­pres­sion and nor­mally lock my­self in my room. But each new day I’ve man­aged to get out more and now I’m back at work and walk­ing all the time. This chal­lenge gave me some­thing to work to­wards. I’ve gone from no walk­ing to walk­ing hun­dreds of miles! This chal­lenge re­ally helped me get my life back on track. Now I feel so much bet­ter. I feel happy when I walk and my joints are ben­e­fit­ing too. My de­pres­sion and anx­i­ety have re­duced and I also sleep bet­ter too. So much just by walk­ing! And I feel part of an amaz­ing walk­ing fam­ily. My daugh­ter loves walk­ing too now. I re­cently asked her what she wanted to do for her birth­day and she replied “Can we go for a long walk?”
