For most of us, summer and fall seasons are the perfect times for outdoor gatherings, reunions, and sports. Of course, with COVID-19 making us continually aware of safety concerns and the need for social distancing, much of our group activity has been curtailed or canceled altogether. But that doesn’t mean that we don’t all feel the urge to head outdoors and get some fresh air and exercise. And for good reason.

According to The American Institute of Stress, a recent study conducted by Science Direct found that spending time outdoors can help improve mental health. According to their research, nature excursions can help alleviate feelings of time pressure and mental stress. Taking a break from urban settings and spending time outdoors in the wilderness increased life satisfaction, happiness, and mindfulness in study participants.
