Enjoying the benefits of outdoor activity

We’re excited to welcome you to Let’s Get Out There, our new campaign that seeks to inspire more women to enjoy the many benefits of being active outdoors.

We know that women, particularly those from culturally diverse backgrounds, face greater barriers to accessing and enjoying outdoor spaces, so we’ll be sharing lots of ways to get moving outside and showcasing the groups out there already overcoming these barriers.

    There are so many reasons to give outdoors activity a try, including: 

    • spending time in green and blue spaces – from urban parks and canals, to coastal paths and forests – is great for your physical and mental health, boosting your happiness and confidence
    • getting active outdoors is often easier than you think, with opportunities right from your doorstep, if staying closer to your home and family works best for you.
    • not needing lots of gear and there are options for all fitness levels, ages and backgrounds, from a quiet stroll in the woods to a riverside walk
    • going outdoors can be a great way to spend time with family and friends, meet communities of like-minded people or even just take a bit of me-time.

    Not sure how to get started? No problem!

    When it comes to building up your confidence about being active outside, take small steps and find something that works for you.

    Walking the kids to the local park, taking your yoga mat outside in the morning or doing some stretches on a balcony, courtyard or garden at home are all great ways of starting to adapt to getting active outdoors.


    There are plenty of opportunities to enjoy the benefits of getting active outdoors.

    It could be taking a stroll along a nearby footpath, enjoying a walk in your local forest or simply exploring your nearest park.

    Here are some ideas on how to get started with Forestry EnglandCanal & River Trust or Ordnance Survey

    And if you’re planning a trip further afield, please take a look at The Countryside Code for guidance on how to enjoy the outdoors responsibly.
