“In general I feel more relaxed and calm when I get to my desk if I’ve walked or cycled”
Pete started to walk to work and cycle to school with his daughter. He enjoys interacting with nature and spending quality time together before his day at work as well as all of the physical benefits of walking.
In general, I feel more relaxed and calm when I get to my desk if I’ve walked or cycled to drop Pip at nursery then carry on to work so it helps with general wellbeing. It’s kind of nice to be able to take our time and ‘bimble’ over to the nursery and let the kids move around.
“My route to work from home is quite green really, lots of ginnels and more scenic routes and if I was always in my car I wouldn’t know about that.”
Walking has loads of physical benefits too, plus things like interacting with nature, learning and picking things up as we go along, just spending some quality time together before work, not thinking about anything else.
If I cycle to school with Pip in the child’s seat on the back, I guess I have to be a bit more organised but she enjoys it, we get fresh air, I get some exercise and it’s fun too!
