The walks give me an opportunity to relax from the stresses of a demanding job and give me time to relax, connect with nature and other people.
Clarity Walk is the reason I am now back at work and feel better mentally to take on each day.
The benefits of being off my phone for an hour and interacting with others in nature has had great positive effects on me.
After the walks, I feel refreshed and more energized. The activity brings me back in the present moment, where I feel more centered and ready to take on my day.

Our purpose is to reduce isolation, reduce anxiety and create stronger, more resilient communities by bringing people of all ages together in nature and our social activites.
Over the next 5 years we want to support 10000 people to improve their mental wellbeing by reconnecting in nature.
We believe in collaborating with local and national businesses, charities and schools to create the biggest impact.
We strive to teach people of all ages how to lower stress, reduce distraction and use their time more positively by providing more phone free time and education with our services.
Clarity Walk is all about inclusivity and we believe everyone should have access to our service so we have walks for all abilities, we have transport systems to support those that don’t drive, and we have referral programs available to remove financial barriers that could prevent people in need joining.
Our aims are to become the leading wellbeing provider in the UK for walking services. We are going to achieve this by working alongside NHS, GPs, counsellors, and mental health charities, as well as corporate organisations.
With the impact Clarity Walk creates we do not want to limit it to the Highlands and we aim to expand across Scotland through a franchising model, and then the UK. Clarity Walk will continue to adapt and support people when they need us most.
Over the next 5 years we want to:

Discovering methods that helped me recover from depression I knew I wanted to help others in the same way
My name is Matt and I was self-employed as a personal trainer for the last 5 years. I lost my passion for my business and decided to move to Glasgow in 2017 to try and reignite it. However this was the wrong decision.
I ended up in a gym I did not enjoy; I was very lonely in a new city; my body started to fail and I was on my phone way too much. I was comparing myself to others such as the body beautiful, the rich and famous and just other people wondering “why am I not like them?” and I felt like a failure.
All of this took its toll on my mental health and I slipped into a dark depression often asking myself “What is the point?”, “Why should I continue?” and “What is my purpose to be here?”
I had dark thoughts most days but thankfully I never acted on them and I am here today. I became aware I wasn’t happy and looked at my negative habits and I started to reverse them.
I was on my phone way too much so I decided to reduce my screen time and that gave me my time back so I could connect better with others; feel more in control and get more done each day.
My body couldn’t handle intense exercise anymore so I decided to walk in nature and that helped me reduce anxiety, clear my head and keep my body healthy.
I wasn’t connecting with people offline so I decided I needed to socialise more and that helped me feel connected as it was nice to have more face to face conversations and learn about people.
By changing these simple habits my happiness started to improve but I had to deal with a core issue. I had to change careers.
I moved back home and knew I wanted to help people in the same way that I helped myself. I looked at what worked for me that could be backed up by research to help others.
I formed the UK’s first No-Phone nature walk to help disconnect people from technology and reconnect them with others, nature and themselves. We became a social enterprise and our first walk was in August 2019 and it has really taken off since.
I now love what I do and will continue to work hard to benefit the Highlands and beyond.
