 Join the weekly #Gratitudewalk Saturday 7:30am Silky Oak Espresso Strathpine 

What
The #Gratitudewalk combines the health benefits of walking with the psychological benefits of practising gratitude into one 60 minutes (maximum time) walking and stretching session. Afterwards, we stop and have a chat while enjoying at cuppa at Silky Oak Espresso Strathpine.

 

When and Where
The walk starts at 7:30 am each Saturday morning from Silky Oak Espresso Strathpine, 355a Gympie Road on the corner of Buckby Street Strathpine, (near Pine Rivers State High School). The group walks along the four-mile creek and heads toward Kensington Village. During the walk, you can enjoy the range of trees, foliage and good company.

Who
This group is set up to support survivors of Domestic Violence so that they have an inexpensive form of physical activity in a safe and supportive environment. A range of people attend the walks, which provides survivors with a great support network, especially if they have had to relocate for safety reasons.

Benefits
Outdoor walking groups have wide-ranging health benefits including reducing blood pressure, body fat, total cholesterol and risk of depression. The group while walking undertakes the practice of gratitude, being grateful for their surroundings and with their buddy they recount three things that ‘What-Went-Well’ during the week, this exercise is also known as the ‘Three Blessings’. Being grateful and practising gratitude helps to increase happiness and reduce depression. Walking with a group also reduces social isolation and increases feelings of connectedness.
