Do something different!

Hi everyone

When you are redundant, it can be easy to get into a rut.  Do something different to energize yourself.

  • Walk a different way into town.
  • If you usually have a bath, have a shower instead, or vice versa.
  • If you write with your right hand, then try to write with your left.
  • If you usually go to the pub to meet your friends, try meeting them in a cafe instead.
  • If you normally sit and watch TV in the evenings, then go for a walk.

It’s all about giving yourself something other than the norm to think about, to revitalise a tired routine and to see things from a different perspective.

If you enjoy walking for charity or you have never tried it before, there is no better time than when you are redundant to give it a go.

Why not take part in the first ever Discovery Trail Challenge on Saturday 28th of July 2012, in aid of the Devon Air Ambulance Trust.  This will be your opportunity to walk the entire length of the Tamar Valley Discovery Trail, that is 25 miles, whilst raising money for a good cause.

The event will start between 8am and 9am and offer walkers the chance to complete one of the most varied and rewarding routes of the South West.  They are asking for a £10 donation to join the walk, which will cover all charges regarding the ferry crossing, transport at the end of the walk back to the start, refreshments at 8 points along the way, First Aid cover and a little towards the cost of administration.

For more information regarding the walk there are various contact methods as outlined below:

Cornwall Council Tamar Valley AONB, Tamar Valley Centre, Cemetery Road, Drakewalls, Gunnislake, Cornwall, PL18 9FE.

Together we can beat redundancy blues.
