Women Outdoors | An Introduction

Get outside. It’s the best place to be.

The outdoors is full of beautiful landscapes, new activities and adventures and unending places to explore. It can also be a really scary place though, too, if you don’t know what you’re doing – particularly for women. We generally tend to be slightly more cautious than our male counterparts and so tend to avoid putting ourselves out there.

For me, when I was growing up not going outdoors and being where I wanted to be just wasn’t good enough. I had no-one else to go outdoors with so I simply went on my own. I’d pack my car up or wrap up to go out on the bike and just go. But I’ve come to understand that not everybody is keen on this – I’m going to suggest it’s merely a matter of confidence in most cases.

Putting myself out there has helped me on so many levels and so now, I am looking at motivating other women to take that step out the door, to have their own adventure, push their limits and explore what our fabulous little country has to offer. After all, the first step is the hardest – but I believe once taken, it’s hard to stop.

That’s where this new Women Outdoors series comes in – to inspire you all to get outside

I’m seeking out and asking some incredible women all about how they go about achieving their dream goal or challenge. How did they come up with their ideas? How did they go about making it happen?

You get the idea… All the questions to get you thinking about walking out the door and making your own adventure.

 

You’ll have to keep an eye out here for these inspiring interviews, coming very soon. Visit my Instagram page (@women.outdoors) for more outdoor inspiration.

    I’m quite happy to head ‘out there’ on my own but sadly I have several friends who wouldn’t dream of heading out by themselves, they just don’t think it’s safe yet it’s a quiet, rural community.
    I personally think it’s far more lethal to sit festering on the sofa. 😉
    what a great idea to inspire and empower people to give it a go.

      Thanks Clare. I hope it works! And I agree about the sofa part, too.

    Liking the sound of this series. I used to go out to the Chilterns on my own prior to having my babies.

      Thanks Helena, fingers crossed it helps more people get outside! Do you take your kids out there now – or is that lined up for the future? 🙂

    Love it, such inspiring words. It’s easier said then done for a lot of people though, that’s why it’s great to read your posts. Getting outside has so many benefits for every aspect of our lives, it’s so important to keep shouting about it.

      Thanks Lauren! That’s what I’m hoping for. I really believe it’s important for everybody but appreciate it can be scary. I’m excited for the next one interview, too! (currently running late with it, argh!) It’s going to be a good one 🙂
