"Impassioned and warm, this book focuses on the positives of walking for health, healing, and happiness. "
This compassionate and readable memoir also acts as a practical guide to include walking and nature in your everyday life. Julia Bradbury speaks with passion, she says she has: “decades of lived experience of walking as a curative. I’ve used it to help me through breast cancer and other physical traumas, as well as IVF and miscarriages, grief, mental health issues, and even a broken heart”. She confirms that: “this is not a book about cancer. It is about walking yourself happy and healthy, wherever you find yourself in life, and whatever your situation”. The book includes exercises and insights from named experts, there are uplifting stories from other people, and a reminder of the importance of being ethical and conserving nature and our wild places. It includes quotes and points out other locations for finding help. There are elements within that you can move on by, or pause and reflect and join with. Travelling with Julia through far off places as well as those closer to home is fascinating. It feels as though she is being true to herself as she writes, in effect sharing of herself to help others. Kind and thoughtful, energised and sincere, Walk Yourself Happy is recommended as one of our non-fiction books of the month.
