Do you wish you could make the outdoors a bigger part of your life?

Liv Bolton, host of the chart-topping podcast The Outdoors Fix, presents an inspiring collection of stories about ordinary people who have done just that. By making time for their passions – from walking, running, climbing, swimming and paddleboarding to photography, filmmaking, cooking and conservation – they have found their daily lives transformed through immersion in nature and the countryside. The chapters include the stories of outdoor instructor Rehna Yaseen, mental-health campaigner Alex Staniforth, Black Girls Hike regional leader Oge Ejizu and coastal runner Elise Downing.

Time outdoors can be hugely beneficial, and even small changes can make a big difference: improving happiness, enhancing work–life balance, introducing new friendships and boosting physical and mental health. Packed with stunning photographs and practical tips encompassing everything from after-work local adventures to spending a night out on the hills, The Outdoors Fix might just provide the inspiration you need to embrace the great outdoors and live more adventurously.

Liv Bolton is a journalist, writer and podcast host. In 2018, after years of working in the high-stress environment of London newsrooms, she took a career break and hiked 800 miles down the South Island of New Zealand on the Te Araroa long-distance trail. The three months of being outdoors every day changed her perspective on life and work, and led to the creation of The Outdoors Fix podcast. She has subsequently interviewed people from all over the UK whose lives have been positively impacted by the outdoors. Recordings have taken place on the sides of mountains, by lakes, in sheep barns and in the pouring rain. Liv is also a producer for BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour and her writing has appeared in Telegraph Travel, The Great Outdoors and Adventure Travel magazines. She lives on the edge of the Chilterns.
