a healthier life at bicton gardens.



A few weeks ago, I took my lovely mum out for an early birthday treat, to Bicton Gardens in Devon. 


I'm sure mum wouldn't appreciate me telling you her age, so let's just say she's ever so slightly into the age bracket that Simply Health are trying to target with their new #HealthyAgeing campaign. Apparently, people over 55 are slacking a little in the exercise department, but the nice thing is, exercise doesn't actually have to mean slogging your guts at the gym..

exercise can mean a nice day out, walking around looking at pretty flowers!

So that's what we did, and apart from feeling good about being on our feet all day, we got to have a lovely catch up and spend some proper time together - which is something that we don't get to do enough! 

You can see the fun infographic here, and make sure you subtly send it to those people who might need to get off the couch and smell the roses instead!































Thank you very much to Simply Health for providing the tickets for the gardens!

  6. Such gorgeous photos, looks like a fantastic day out. I'm definitely sending that infographic to my dad as he definitely needs a bit more encouraging to get off of the computer and quit playing his silly Facebook games x
