We believe that life is better by water, so why not use your local canal or river to improve how you feel?
Five ways to wellbeing
Spend time with family, meet new friends and engage with your community.
Connecting with others can give us a sense of inclusion, belonging, safety and community. Spending time together can help us strengthen bonds, make new friends and boost our happiness.
2. Be active
You don't need to run a marathon, or paddle from one end of the country to the other to feel a boost of endorphins. A gentle stroll or a leisurely-paced pedal on your bike is enough to give your mood a boost.
As a bonus, physical exercise encourages a healthy heart, healthy eating and better sleep.
3. Take notice
Take a moment to wake up your senses by slowing down and taking a deep breath. Mindfulness is a great way to relax the body and improve your mood.
Our canals and rivers offer the perfect place to slow down and escape, whenever you feel you need a break.
