6,000 steps a day in November Shareable Resources
This November, SameYou is asking supporters to walk 6,000 steps every day to raise money for SameYou and help the one in three who will experience a brain injury in their lifetime.
The benefits of walking during brain injury recovery
SameYou and the thousands of survivors who have written to us believe that mental health support is vital, yet it is too often left unaddressed during recovery. We know the strong connection between walking and mental health, with exercise triggering the release of ‘feel good’ hormones, so through this challenge, we want to empower you to take the next step in your recovery alongside our growing community.
In fact, did you know that just ten minutes of brisk walking can increase self-esteem, reduce anxiety and stress, and create a positive mood?
