Whether it be taking an afternoon stroll, exploring the local cycling trails or nurturing your garden – how will you get outdoors this month?
Soak up the sun
A dose of Vitamin D is almost like a supercharge hit of goodness. Remember to use a proper UVA/UVB sunscreen to protect your skin.
Mother nature, the ultimate inspiration. Look out to as far as you can see, and discover fresh ideas and inspiring landscapes. A simple walk can often give you space to think and stimulate new thinking.
During the summer months, the pull of the great outdoors is more attractive for exercise. Undertaking an active lifestyle has been shown to improve sleep quality and increase life expectancy. From cycling local trails to walking the dog, nature is a great motivator to stay active with daily forms of exercise.
Outdoor spaces are a great opportunity to come together with friends and family, and be part of a larger community. With beautiful backdrops, nature allows us the space to gather and reconnect.
A chance to leave behind the stresses of daily life and a reminder of what is important. Green spaces help with living in the moment and being present. There is something about the quiet calm of nature that leaves the mind rested.
