Ain't Being Active BRILLIANT!!!

So we've kick-started this months well-being theme of being active with an introduction to the theme last Tuesday night, AND a well-being walk on Sunday to boot too!

Last week Happiness Hubbers learnt all about the well-being and health benefits of being active and shared the activities they already do with the group. We had some great discussions about what we can all do to get active and how to get started too, if it's something that you've been thinking about for a while but didn't know where to start.

Being active can help you will ALL of the following as well as releasing those feel-good endorphins to boost your mood:

  • to enjoy more restful sleep and wake up refreshed

  • be more relaxed and less stressed

  • have more energy and vitality

  • to have firm, well-toned arms, legs and bottoms

  • have a better-adjusted appetite

  • to look and feel years younger

  • more confidence and self-esteem

  • boost your immune system

  • stay a healthy weight & reduce your risk of cancer, heart disease, stroke & type 2 diabetes

  • have stronger bones and joints

  • improve your shape and posture

It was great to hear that many of our Hubbers were making good use of the wonderful Cheshire Countryside that we live in and that many people were already partaking in organised walks in and around the town.

So much so that rather than doing our own thing we joined Crewe/Nantwich and Middlewich Social on their guided walk from Acton Church on Sunday, followed by tea/coffee and cake at the Tower. (You had us at cake).

Several of our Happiness Hubbers already join the monthly walks from the church so we thought we'd tag along too. A slow and steady 5 and a half miles, making sure no one was left behind and then refreshments at the church afterwards if you needed some well-earned substance!

It was great to blow away cobwebs, chat with some new people and explore areas of Nantwich we'd never been before.

So I think we'll be organising our own walks some weekend and joining the walk from the church again, which they run the first Sunday of every month.

After our walk on Sunday, we also received this message from one of our members, it's amazing to know that the groups and activities were running and getting involved with are helping people connect and feel part of the community.

"I just want to say a huge thank you to you, for setting up the Happiness Hub! It has made such a difference to me and helping to feel connected after moving here last year. Today was just fantastic too, really enjoyed it, I hope you did too.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!"
