Hi, I’m Ali, I’m slowly getting closer to 40 and I have a long relationship with anxiety and all the joys that that brings.

If you’re looking for a blog about those amazing adventurous women that climb mountains or compete in triathlons, then I’m sorry, but thats not here.

However, whilst I may not climb mountains, I aim to move them. I write open and honestly about my anxiety, to reduce the stigma around mental health, and to let others know that they aren’t alone.

“How wild it was, to let it be”

Cheryl Strayed, Wild

I want to promote the benefits of getting out in nature to an individuals well being for those that are too scared to take their first steps, I like to think of it as hill and tree therapy. I use walking and micro adventures to help me maintain my mental health, and I believe it can help others to.

This is my writing space, where I write about my anxious wild adventures, as well as a bit of travel writing, reviews, attempts at sustainable living and also about my very first big(ish) adventure, My Cornish Camino.

If you use Instagram, I’m encouraging the use of the hashtag #AnxiousWild, for those that managed to go on an adventure, no matter how small the adventure was or how worried they were, but they made it anyway.
