Between busy workdays, kids’ after school activities, errands, full social calendars, everyday life admin, and non-stop screen time, life has a tendency to get a little overwhelming, and it’s enough to keep us at a permanent level of stress below the surface, which ultimately causes our well-being to really suffer.
In today’s world of the busy, the quick and the convenient, we’re spending more and more time indoors, and have become increasingly inactive, mentally stagnant, and detached from our natural environment.
Our stress, anxiety, and depression levels are rising, our physical fitness is suffering, and our minds are clouded and overwhelmed.
We suggest that you do your brain and body a favour and spend some more time outdoors, because getting out into nature can do more for a person’s mind, body, and soul than you may think!

Here are 3 great reasons to get outside
1. Its Physical Benefits
This one might be the most obvious.
Naturally, walking, running, or biking through the great outdoors provides numerous physical benefits. Getting outside regularly for even a short hike can reduce your risk of heart disease, lower blood pressure and cholesterol, and even help to prevent type II diabetes. Not to mention it can be a great workout for your entire body. But the physical benefits are almost incidental to how hiking can contribute to your overall mental health and wellbeing.
2. It Makes Us Happier
No really, it does!
For natural stress relief and an instant mood boost, head outdoors. Spending time outdoors quietens the mind, and has been proven to reduce blood pressure and cortisol levels, and ultimately helps to alleviate stress, anxiety and cognitive fatigue, thus producing a calming effect only nature can offer.
3. It Allows Us to Reconnect
While getting outside gives you physical space, you’ll also get the emotional and mental distance needed to momentarily place aside the pressures of everyday life. Heading outside gives a chance to reflect, recharge, and reconnect with yourself when you’ve been too busy to take notice.
