But why the outdoors and wellbeing niche?

I’m an outdoor girl…

My life has been shaped by the natural world; the child who loved ‘grubbing about in the garden’ became the grown-up with a huge rock collection; the teen who was challenged by Duke of Edinburgh expeditions became the adult who walked The Pennine Way; the geology student who burst to share her knowledge became the walk leader who inspires people about the landscape.

At university I studied geology, palaeobiology and palaeobotany then completed outdoor instructor training. So for some years I was immersed in the British landscape. My understanding of the natural world grew and I love sharing my discoveries with others, helping them to enjoy the outdoors too.

A follower of Jesus…

But the best part of getting outdoors for me is being closer to God. I feel peace and joy when I’m surrounded by His creation becoming deeply connected with my Creator and the natural world. It’s a great buffer for life’s demands.

And I believe nature heals…

I’ve experienced how nature and the great outdoors heal. Mountain walking helped me recover from depression and I still enjoy getting outside every day to maintain positive wellbeing.

In the last few years I’ve had to find less active ways to enjoy being outside because of a health condition. I’m now a huge fan of nature connection and regularly enjoy mindful walking or forest bathing. If nothing else, I’ll admire the clouds scudding across the sky on a windy day or relax to the sound of the dawn chorus.

And how did I become a copywriter?

Susan Hammond Copywriter About me

It began with a blog…

In November 2016 I was diagnosed with CFS/ME which shook my life up a tad! How could I enjoy the outdoors now? What was I meant to do with my life? But after some soul searching I realised even though I couldn’t be so active myself I could still inspire others. So I started a blog and began sharing my outdoor enthusiasm by writing about it.**

But I already had writing experience…

As I already had more than ten years of writing and research experience – and love doing both – I thought, “Why not combine this with my passion for the outdoors and become a copywriter?”

So I did!

And now I’m a freelance copywriter…

I trained, got my copywriting diploma and more experience. And now I focus my writing to help business owners like you succeed.
