ACTIVITIES TO TRY

The ethos of Havin’ a Laugh is to promote participation in all forms of life-enhancing activities to improve personal mental health.
The activities best suited to you will depend on your own life experiences and preferences.
To make it easier to navigate all the potential activities available in the Northwest of Ireland we have categorised them into three general areas.
We invite you to LET OFF STEAM, DIP YOUR TOE & LET IT ALL GO…

LET OFF STEAM

LET OFF STEAM is for when you’re feeling the need to exercise your demons or just burn off some stress in a healthy way.
These activities are suitable for people with a higher level of fitness, you may already be active at other sports and have an ‘up for anything’ attitude. Trying these activities for the first time or returning to a forgotten pastime can bring with it a sense of achievement and exhilaration.
LET OFF STEAM activities can include mountain biking, surfing, trail-running, skateboarding and mountain climbing.
