The nights are drawing in and temperatures are cooling off, but the outdoors is still open and our daily dose of fresh air during autumn is more important than ever. Mix up your local daily exercise with these ideas from the free Get Outside in Somerset Active Autumn Challenge calendar.

“It’s tempting to let the cooler days allure you into hibernation. But research has shown time and time again that time spent moving outside can help boost your mood, sharpen your focus, reduce stress, and improve sleep. And although it can feel like there isn’t much to do, that really isn’t the case! There are lots of activities best done in Autumn, from stargazing to pumpkin picking, and crafting to wildlife spotting. That’s why we have created the Active Autumn Challenge, there is a different activity to enjoy every day, or mix things up if the activity doesn’t suit you on that day!”

October is a beautiful month to be discovering what’s on your doorstep. The leaves are changing and Halloween will be soon upon us. Take a look at the daily activities to keep active with a special focus on half term activities.

There’s something different every day, but also a chance for you to make your own. We would love for you to share your photos with us taking part or your favourite activity or even when you’re out and about enjoying what Somerset has to offer. Share with us on social media using #GetOutsideActiveAutumn and don’t forget to tag us!
