Join Get Outside in Somerset for the Active Autumn Challenge!
Posted: Fri, 01 Oct 2021 11:22
The Get Outside in Somerset project has unveiled its October 2021 challenge: Active Autumn.
The nights are drawing in and temperatures are cooling off, but the outdoors is still open and our daily dose of fresh air during autumn is more important than ever. Mix up your local daily exercise with these ideas from the free Get Outside in Somerset Active Autumn Challenge calendar.
The Get Outside in Somerset project is a joint initiative from Somerset Activity and Sport Partnership (SASP), The Community Council for Somerset (CCS), Spark Somerset, and Somerset Wildlife Trust, funded by Somerset County Council Public Health.
Sarah Coombs, Strategic Lead for Somerset Activity and Sports Partnership, comments, "It's tempting to let the cooler days allure you into hibernation. But research has shown time and time again that time spent moving outside can help boost your mood, sharpen your focus, reduce stress, and improve sleep. And although it can feel like there isn't much to do, that really isn't the case! There are lots of activities best done in Autumn, from stargazing to pumpkin picking, and crafting to wildlife spotting. That's why we have created the Active Autumn Challenge, there is a different activity to enjoy every day, or mix things up if the activity doesn't suit you on that day!"
