Nature, Walks and Gardens

A strong body of evidence suggests that physical activity in green spaces has stronger mental health benefits than physical activity in non-green spaces.  Being outdoors is associated with decreased health complaints, improved blood pressure and cholesterol levels, reduced stress, improved general health perceptions and a greater ability to face problems (National Recreation and Park Association/Parks and Health).
