Substantial Evidence Linking Nature To
Physical Health And Psychological Wellbeing



Outdoor exercise in a natural setting indicates that nature can make positive contributions to our health, help us recover from pre-existing stresses or problems, have an “immunising” effect by protecting us from future stresses, and help us to concentrate and think more clearly 6.
