It is well known that physical activity improves both physiological and psychological well-being. There are studies which address additional physiological and mental health benefits that appear to occur when exercise is performed in an outdoor environment. People’s connection to nature has changed over the centuries, and this has important implications as to how humans now interact with nature. Barriers exist these days, and it’s believed the synergistic combination of exercise and exposure to nature means the ‘great outdoors’ could be used as a powerful tool to help fight the growing incidence of both physical inactivity and non-communicable disease. What more reason do we need to connect to nature and be active outdoors?
