It's Springtime, the days are getting longer and brighter and usually we'd all be starting to emerge from our wintery hideouts and getting some Vitamin D, but alas, all unnecessary travel is banned and we're all at home.

"It's not what happens, it's how you deal with it" is our motto here at Wellbeing Choices at Work and so we've come up with five of the best outdoor adventures that you can have from your sofa! So, wrap up warm, open all the windows and get ready to enjoy the best that the indoor/outdoors have to offer!
