recovery walk and talk

Recovery Walk And Talk – Sittingbourne, Kent

Exploring the physical and mental health benefits of connections, conversation, and walking in nature.

On 27th June at 2pm we’ll be holding our annual Recovery Walk and Talk.

The Recovery Lodge team and The Recovery Group Mentors invite you to join us for a gentle stroll around Conyer Creek, Teynham. This is a circular walk around the Saxon Shore Way and should take around an hour to complete. The aim is for us all to get together, get outside in nature and enjoy the fresh air, and discuss anything and everything.

We will meet at Conyer Quay, where there is parking along the road.

The postcode for Conyer Quay is ME9 9HR and the What3Words location is awaiting.hush.wasps

The ground is fairly even throughout, so people with mobility issues can join. However, it is not ideal for wheelchair users. 

By combining the therapeutic power of conversation, the restorative benefits of spending time outdoors, and the opportunity to meet and connect with like-minded people, this event offers a unique pathway to enhance both physical and mental wellbeing, and assist you on your recovery journey.

The Power of Conversation

At The Recovery Lodge, we regularly hold group therapy sessions as part of the recovery process because we know how much talking with peers can help with an individual’s addiction recovery.


Engaging in meaningful conversations with others can have a remarkable impact on your mental health. By openly discussing thoughts, feelings, and experiences, you can alleviate burdens, gain perspective, develop a sense of validation, and learn new things.

Here’s just a few benefits that the simple act of having a conversation with someone can provide:

1. Emotional Release

Sharing personal stories, challenges, and feelings with empathetic listeners can provide a cathartic release, reducing stress, anxiety, and helping you feel less overwhelmed.

2. Improved Self-Awareness

By vocalising your thoughts and feelings, you can gain a deeper understanding of your emotions, allowing you to self-reflect and make room for personal growth.

3. Support and Encouragement

Conversations with people in a similar situation as yourself can foster a sense of belonging and provide plenty of opportunities for encouragement, promoting a more positive mindset and reinforcing your recovery efforts.

The Embrace of Nature

Spending time outdoors in nature offers a wealth of physical and health benefits. The Recovery Walk and Talk event helps to harness the restorative effects of being outdoors to help enhance your wellbeing.

Some benefits that being outdoors and in nature can provide include:

1. Physical Exercise

Walking is a great, low-impact activity that promotes cardiovascular health, strengthens muscles, and improves overall fitness. It can also boost energy levels, release endorphins, and positively impact your mood. All of these benefits are fantastic for assisting anyone’s recovery efforts.

2. Reduce Stress

Being out in nature has a soothing effect on the mind and helps to reduce stress and anxiety. The calming effect of outdoor environments can improve mental clarity, help balance emotions, and improve your mood, making outdoor walks a great way to help with recovery.

3. Connect with Nature

Nature has a profound ability to inspire awe and wonder, fostering feelings of appreciation and gratitude. By connecting with the natural world, you can evoke a sense of serenity, rejuvenation, and gain a broader perspective on life.

Fostering Connections and Support

Participating in the Recovery Walk and Talk event can help people to connect with others who share similar experiences and challenges. 

By engaging and connecting in this way, you could benefit from:

1. Peer Support

Forming connections with people who have faced similar struggles can provide a sense of camaraderie and understanding. Sharing experiences, exchanging advice, and offering support can strengthen recovery efforts.

2. Reduced Stigma

Being a part of a supportive community can help combat the stigma associated with addiction, addiction recovery, and mental health. By coming together and openly discussing these topics, participants can promote awareness, acceptance, and compassion.

3. Motivation and Inspiration

Engaging with others who have overcome obstacles can be a powerful source of inspiration. Witnessing personal success stories can ignite motivation, instilling hope and determination in your own recovery journey.


Come along and experience these benefits for yourself

The Recovery Walk and Talk will bring together the benefits of conversation, getting out and about in nature, and building connections with like-minded people. By recognising the immense physical and mental health benefits of these activities, you can embark on a transformative experience that will help with personal growth, support your recovery efforts, and enhance your overall wellbeing. 

Join us for this event and start or continue your own journey of healing, resilience, and connection.

Not only could you experience some or maybe even all of the above, but it’ll be nice just to get out for a walk along the coast.
