10 enriching things to try in March to benefit your wellbeing

From an expectation-free hiking trend to an all-inclusive communication guide, we have ten wellbeing recommendations just for you

1. Page-turners

A Book to Brighten Your Day: Murphy’s Sketches by Kerri Cunningham

2. Out and about

Soft hiking

Are you an adventure enthusiast who simply loves the thrill of the journey, and isn’t too concerned with achieving a specific goal? If you can relate, get ready to embrace soft hiking! Put simply, soft hiking is hiking without a competitive stance, purely for the enjoyment and the experience. Where will your soft hiking escapades take you?

3. Act of kindness

Make your friends feel heard

Do you notice that someone in your friendship circle always gets spoken over by more extroverted friends in the group? Let’s make a conscious effort to circle back to them, and ensure their voice is heard. Just because they may be a little quieter, doesn’t mean their thoughts aren’t fascinating and worth listening to.


4. Lend us your ears

‘Best Friend Therapy’

Elizabeth Day is an author and broadcaster known for her self-help podcast ‘How to Fail’. Now, she joins forces with psychotherapist Emma Reed-Turrell – her best friend of 20 years – to chat about everyday challenges, and address them with compassion and honesty as if they were your own BFFs.

8. Get going

Tai Chi

Tai Chi is another mind-body practice that is popular in the fitness world, and for good reason. You might associate it with self-defence, but it is often referred to as the ‘moving meditation’ because of its slow, graceful movements and breathing exercises. This ancient practice is specifically designed to harmonise both the mind and body.
