Mums Go Hiking was set up by Jenny from TraveLynn Family in January 2020 to inspire and encourage busy mums to make time to get outside in nature and enjoy some time to themselves.

Mums are always so rushed off their feet juggling the kids, work and household duties. We wear so many different hats and rarely make any time for ourselves. We always put all other family members before our own needs.

So how does it work? Mums – get out in nature once a week for a hike, snap a photo of yourself, then share it to Instagram/stories using @mumsgohiking 🙌 Simple. I then share my faves to the Mums snap a photo on their weekly hike and I share it to the mumsgohiking instagram page. Let’s inspire and encourage us busy mums to commit and book ourselves in for some regular solo time amongst nature. No kids, no work, no distractions 😌.

This isn’t a ‘get fit’ thing, and going for a run or an exercise class doesn’t count. This is all about connecting with nature, letting your mind wander, and reconnecting with yourself through the power of a simple walk in nature. And it doesn’t have to be a rigorous mountain hike. Just a stroll around the local park, a walk along the beach or a river. Wherever nature is close to you, go out and enjoy it – without the kids!
