As we are getting closer to the hot months of summer many of us are getting outside and enjoying the beautiful world around us. Not only does it feel good to move our bodies and get in some exercise but research has shown that simply being in the outdoors has a positive impact to our physical and mental health:
“Most research so far has focused on green spaces such as parks and forests, and researchers are now also beginning to study the benefits of blue spaces, places with river and ocean views. But nature comes in all shapes and sizes, and psychological research is still fine-tuning our understanding of its potential benefits.”
Whether green or blue spaces, bonding with nature is good for the body and soul. What are some of your favorite places to commune with nature nearby your home? What activities do you like to do in your favorite spots? Swimming, running, hiking etc?
