Read on to learn more about the wonderful work Clarity Walk is doing for local people’s mental and physical well-being.
The detrimental effect screens, phones and digital technology can have on our mental and physical health is something that is well documented. The pandemic has brought this into sharp focus, with many of us finding screens looming ever larger in our daily lives more than ever before, as well as living more isolated lives.
If you’re finding yourself living life by the light of a screen and feeling a sense of isolation, then a Clarity Walk may be the breath of fresh air you need!
What is a Clarity Walk?
Clarity Walk is a local Inverness charitable organisation founded by Matt Wallace that seeks to help people feel less stressed, happier and feel more connected with their ‘No Phone’ nature walks and retreats.
Their mission is to support people across Scotland to reconnect with each other and with nature. They want to help improve the health and wellbeing of locals through walking and talking without the distraction of phones.
They provide group walks, 1to1 walks with one of their guides, as well as team-building outings for groups.
A group walk is led by their experienced walk leaders who are there to help those on the walk feel connected through walking and talking. Based in Inverness/Nairnshire, they have group walks all through the week for all abilities, including walks for those with mobility restrictions.
They walk through wonderful local settings such as Cawdor Woods, Ness Islands, the Caledonian Canal, Torbreck Woods, Clachnaharry pier, as well as many more!
