Hello my name is Mike Bush I am intested in the concept of the Leeds well being web as it is important to share knowledge, insights and understandings about mental wellbeing and to interact with others in develoing what I hope will be a useful online community. I think it is important to take a diverse view as what is helpful to one person may not be useful to some one else. I have an interest in Ecotherapy and this is how I relax and unwind research shows that walking inn green areas is as effective as anti depessants for mild to moderate depression. See Mind Ecominds for details.
I like going for walks in the greenbelt areas around Leeds particularly along side water such as Leeds Canal and the River Aire as I find walking alongside water very relaxing. My wife is a Healthy Walk Group Leader and she says that when you go for a walk your problems sort of fall behind you. I find this works for me too and I would recommend it.
