Modern day life is busy! Even in lockdown life is busy for some. Stress is our body’s response to pressures from challenging situations in life, and many people are finding things challenging at the moment. We need to find ways to reduce stress and calm our bodies response to anxiety and stress! Research suggests that even just the view of the forest from a hospital room helps patients who are feeling down, and that twenty minutes in nature could significantly reduce your levels of cortisol - the stress hormone.(1)

Start to make a conscious effort to get out everyday for as little as 20 minutes. Get out alone or with friends & family, rain or shine - Listen to the birds, hear the wind in the trees, try tree or plant spotting, and feel that free vitamin D on your skin! Get it done like your 30 mins of exercise - It's just as important!
