You can work on tackling your levels of social activity on your own and here are some resources that you may find helpful.
However, it can be easier to make changes with the help of a health coach to find out what works best for you and support you to make changes at your own pace and develop your confidence to maintain those changes and manage any set-backs

We are a friendly walking group that arranges a regular programme of walks, social events, coach outings, and holidays for members. We also maintain rights of way in the area, provide courses for members on map reading and becoming walk leaders.
Each month we have a short relaxing ramble of 4-6 miles after lunch, normally starting at 14.00 on the third Saturday of the month , and a longer walk of 7-9 miles - but still not tooo strenuous - often with a pub lunch, usually starting at 11.00 on the first Sunday.
We are a friendly group of younger walkers aged from 20 to 49 who enjoy walking around the fantastic landscapes of East and West Sussex.
