Mental Health Benefits of Being Outdoors

Mental Health Benefits of Being Outdoors

It's been an incredible past couple of years and now it's back to school.  Parents are busier running kids around and many kids are zombies their first week back as they get used to new schedules and routines.    

This long weekend, we hope you take in the health, mood bosting and rejuvenation that the outdoors brings.  Breathe in some fresh air, be outdoors and let nature take care of you.

Studies regularly show being outside reduces anxiety, stress and anger and leads to significant health benefits, improved blood pressure and boosts mental health.

All the best this long weekend.

Be Outdoors.  Be Prepared.
