Surviving Lockdown 2021 – Rowan
We are celebrating how our community is using the 5 ways to well-being to get through lockdown (connect – be active – take notice – give – keep learning)
Next up is Rowan, also an Adventure Sports student at Glasgow Kelvin College and a member of the Pinkston freelance team.
“During this lockdown I celebrated my 20th birthday with a beautiful winter walk in my local park (Pollock Park) with my family and dogs. Since then I have been going to Pollok Park every day with the aim on doing 15,000 steps a day. By now I can walk the whole park with my eyes closed but it’s still a part of my day I look forward to! I’m so grateful for my local outdoor spaces which allow me to get out and enjoy nature. For me going out a walk allows me time away from my computer and phone screen as I’m currently an Adventure Sport student stuck in online classes instead of exciting practical sessions. I’ve also been fortunate enough to get out paddling on the canal, flat water paddling is better than no paddling. Getting outdoors helps me to keep a positive mindset and stay active which is very important to me.
