According to the World Health Organisation,
“Green spaces also are important to mental health. Having access to green spaces can reduce health inequalities, improve well-being, and aid in treatment of mental illness. Some analysis suggests that physical activity in a natural environment can help remedy mild depression and reduce physiological stress indicators.”
I can see and feel the positive impact on our family of being out walking in the forest. We are invigorated yet calmed at the same time. It’s a special place and somewhere we like to go regularly.
Whether it’s garden, field, hill, mountain or forest getting out in the fresh air and amongst nature can bring a whole range of health benefits.
Which is your green space of choice and do you get out there as often as you’d like to? If not, how could you remedy that?
