Walk Your Way Toolkit
Whatever the time of year, our surroundings, whether urban or rural have so much to offer us.
There is history; scenery; opportunities for exploration; places to escape to and places to revisit. Really whatever you choose.
The time is ripe for adventure but are you ready?
You might be the kind of person who has loads of great
ideas buzzing round in your head in terms of where you want to walk and you just can’t wait to get to it.
However, I have the feeling that many of you, much as you’d love an adventure, just haven’t a clue where to start.
Adventures can seem challenging but I’m here to tell you that with a little support and guidance they can become second nature…… I’ll even go as far as to say that you are going to have some great fun with this.
Imagine your kids or grandchildren discovering new places and learning new skills.
Imagine some lovely walks that you can take with your partner on balmy evenings, either at home or away, that brings that essence of romance into your days.
How about picnics by a river or on the edge of a waterfall; wandering around a historic building uncovering stories and interesting facts or exploring the back streets of a new town or city.
All these things create memories, precious times to look back on and recount stories about.
I’m Heather Waring and I’m a coach and walking expert.
I love an adventure. I love that they can be as simple or complex as you want them to be.
However, as a mum, I know it’s not always easy, I’ve been in that place that you parents and grandparents find yourselves in, trying to entertain the kids through those long school holidays. How on earth do you keep them busy and entertained when they are different ages and have different interests?
What do you do with your own days off?
How do you bring some fun and magic and something different to your weekends or holidays?
Thats why I’ve put this Toolkit together so that I can help you, by giving tips and guidance to take the stress and concern away and instead walk you through it all (no pun intended)
I have planned so many walks in all parts of the world, walks of different lengths and through so many different terrains. I am always advising on gear, fitness and routes so let me share much of this with you and more.
And by the way ……..this toolkit isn’t only for summer, you can take everything I share and plan walking adventures all year through, and even better, wherever in the world you might be.
How it works
In the Walk Your Way Toolkit the aim is to make it as easy as possible for you.
There’s some information about why walking. Even today, I am always learning about this great activity that anyone can do, anywhere.
We explore why you might walk and what you want to get out of it.
It’ll take you through 3 stages –
How to make it happen;
Taking time to reflect.
And at all the above stages, there’ll be lots of tips, suggestions and links for you to follow.
You’ll also find out about 5 other things that you can do during a walk that might not be top of mind, but can add so much.
I hope that you are intrigued and excited to get hold of this and make the next month or two flow with new experiences for everyone.
I’d love it, if on your adventures, you would take a photo of yourself and/or where you are, what you saw and post it on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook using #walkyourwayadventure
What other women are saying
It’s so nice to be given permission to walk even a tiny distance with the aim of finding tranquility, a place to let go in, a haven away from the constant action and fast pace.

I discovered some new pathways around Moorgate and St. Paul’s. There are some lovely little green spots in and around that neck of the woods.

Sunday was a lovely walk at National Trust Kingston Lacy with a friend who I had not seen in a few years – that was a great catch up time.

I went out walking today. The sun was shining, there were bluebells, swans on the river, ducks and the sweet smell of wild garlic. The sound of the river was amazing.
