Ways to Relax - Make your exercise ‘green’

Research fro the University of Essex suggests that exercising in nature is especially beneficial to mood and self-esteem.

Benefits were found to be greatest after just 5 minutes of such ‘green exercise’, with light activities having the biggest effect on self-esteem and light or vigorous activity the biggest effect on mood.

Walking, jogging, cycling, boating, horse riding, gardening and swimming in the ocean, lakes and rivers are all good options for mood-enhancing outdoor exercise.

Not only will they combat stress, they will also improve your physical fitness.
