Adventure is essential for wellbeing

As an experiential travel enthusiast, we love to talk about adventure, getting out into the great outdoors, stepping out of our comfort zone and of course do something great for communities. It has been cited that all these things will have a positive impact of mental and physical wellbeing.

We were therefore delighted to get in touch with Belinda Kirk to find out more about her new book and how ‘As a force for change, adventure can be powerful like few others’

As a force for change, adventure can be powerful like few others’

If you are looking for an inspirational and liberating book to add to your reading list, then this is the one!

More About The Book

Adventure Revolution: The life-changing power of choosing challenge is the first book to explain why adventure is essential to wellbeing. It puts an energizing and groundbreaking case for ditching the living room in favour of a longer, happier, and more adventurous life.

“Drawing on lessons I’ve learnt from more than two decades of leading groups into the wilderness around the globe, my own research with modern hunter-gatherers, and the latest findings in neuroscience and psychology, I show how adventure has the power to transform the timid into the confident, the addicted into the recovering, and the lost into the intentionally wandering.

It’s coming out on 5th August with Piatkus and Little, Brown Book Group.”

A powerful reminder that adventure truly is a state of mind
