Elements of a Good Ragged Ramble
A good Ragged Ramble happens when some friends:
-> Join up and connect. It's also about meeting and making new friends
-> Are active, perambulating wonderful sites: scampering up weedy hillsides; ascending a precipitous church tower - even taking a swim in some wild water!
-> Stop and take notice of the beauty around them, as well as taking time for themselves
-> Keep learning, with open minds and boundless wonder and curiosity
-> Give to each other - especially if it's a delicious slice of cake!
[See nef's 5 Ways to Well-being for further information about the evidence behind actions to develop emotional resilience and nurture wellbeing]
A good Ramble also involves a sprinkling of tweed and some playfulness. A good Ramble gives licence to wide-ranging conversation and speculation. It engages a range of senses and stretches the imagination. We are inspired to interact creatively with the places we visit. Rambling in a Ragged fashion enhances our sense of wellbeing and sets pettiness in perspective.
There is always laughter.
