The Wild Ways Well Week 23 April

The sun has finally decided to get it’s hat on and make an appearance this year and the Wild Ways Well groups were determined to make the best of it!  To be honest I should have had my own hat on as I got my head a tad sunburnt while out delivering some taster activities

Wild Ways Well the Movie?

Last week our group had a very different experience. Untypically, the Tuesday group started with a wee drive up to Palacerigg for a film training led by two researchers from the James Hutton Institute in Aberdeen. Leaving behind the animals in the cold spring we headed towards the very inspiring long houses which mostly look

Wild Ways Wildlife Detectives

The Wild Ways Wildlife Detective Agency was out in Seafar woods last week, inspecting the woods for signs of what other inhabitants might be sharing our space with us. No detective force on the planet can run without a brew though so we stopped first to get a cuppa on the go.  Just ask Scotland

Anti-depressants are good for you! That was pretty much the message that was being blared out by the newspaper headlines last week after the publication of a major new study into their use was published. The truth is – you won’t be surprised to hear – a little more complicated than that! The actual results

Wild Ways Well 2018

Have you broken any New Year’s resolutions yet? We’re barely into the first week of 2018 and I’ve broken most of mine, which generally focus around eating less chocolate and bacon rolls. Why do I set myself such impossible goals? Time markers can be stressful events for many people. For those of us with depression

Christmas comes just once a year

Christmas comes just once a year – but for those of us with anxiety or stress problems, that can be quite often enough! Decorating trees, buying gifts, preparing meals, visiting family and friends, bad weather, crowded streets… with all the pressure on our purses, family relations and waistbands, it’s no wonder that the festive period
