Event description
This season don't let the cold weather blues keep you inside. Put on your hat, go for a walk and make some new friends.

About this Event

I'll be quite honest in this description. I have seasonal depression. This year I told myself before the bad feelings hit I would create some techniques to help mitigate the symptoms. One of those techniques is just going outside and getting moving, it especially works if you can do it with a group of people who are going to help keep you accountable.

So I'm issuing this challenge to everyone out there who struggles with depression, SAD or just feels down when the cold weather hits. Anyone who has difficulty getting out of the house or just wants to join in and be social is welcome!

The first part of the challenge is to make it out EVERY week. Of course we understand if there's an emergency or other pressing matters. But if you don't show up one week we WILL check up on you! The point is to hold each other up.

The second part of the challenge is the difficulty of the walk. The first couple of weeks we're going to start nice and easy. Just a light stroll through the city. Then we'll start adding on hills and stairs before moving on to more and more challenging hikes. There will be opportunities to go skating together and even cross country skiing has been suggested!

Let's get together and make sure nobody gets left behind this winter. We'll have talks on goal setting and motivation. We'll discuss what's keeping us down. We'll discuss strategies for getting up off the couch when it feels like the hardest thing in the world. But most importantly we'll create relationships with each other based on mutual understanding and a drive to keep everyone out of that dark winter space.

Our first meetings will begin at the Bent Bar Fitness studio (86 Norfolk street, Guelph) and we will be deciding future meeting locations together.
