Want to get more out of your walk? People who walk outside tend to take longer walks and are less stressed. We live in “artificial temperature-neutral environments” almost all day long. It’s time to stop looking through the glass and experience first hand the benefits of nature. Some of the benefits of walking in nature are: improvements in psychological well-being, increased attention span, relaxation, decrease in anxiety, reduction of blood pressure, and it also helps decrease the risk for depression.
Take advantage of the health benefits of nature and you might start to notice that, not only are you enjoying more of your walks, but also that you are walking more!
