To mark Global Wellness Day there will be special walks around the town to allow people to find time for themselves and put the stresses of everyday life aside.

Global Wellness Day is an entirely not-for-profit day, a social project created by volunteers dedicated to living well and the Devonshire Spa, is holding a Wellness Walk on Friday, June 10.

Sian Jones, manager of the University’s Devonshire Spa, which was voted 2016’s Day Spa of the Year by Professional Beauty magazine, said: “The purpose of Global Wellness Day is to ask the question, even if for just one day, ‘how can I live a healthier and better life?’”

The walk is open to all and is designed to take in many of the wonderful heritage and architectural sights of Buxton, showcasing the town as a wellness destination.

Sian said: “We are living in an age where people are suffering from burn-out. People don’t look after themselves and people are shouting about it now.”

Sian said wellness can mean different things to different people, she said: “To one person it could be getting their hair done, to another it’s running a marathon in the Sahara. But really it’s about finding that balance of life that works for you ­– mind, body and soul.

“That’s the overall vision of the development of Buxton, so we need to get Buxton at the forefront of global wellness.”

There are two routes, the main route which should take approximately 30-40 minutes to complete, will leave from the main entrance of the Devonshire Campus at 3pm.

The walk will go head whatever the weather, so please dress appropriately. For further information please contact Sian at s.jones@derby.ac.uk
