“Spending time in the natural environment – as a resident or a visitor – improves our mental health and feelings of wellbeing.
It can reduce stress, fatigue, anxiety and depression. It can help boost immune systems, encourage physical activity and may reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as asthma. It can combat loneliness and bind communities together.”
