Breathe | Move | Thrive Welcome to June's edition of the Breathe, Move, Thrive Newsletter.
The weather is warming up and we are moving more towards experiences outdoors but were you aware of the impact nature has on your whole wellbeing and internal eco-system?
Here are just a few points on the effects of being outside and exercising in nature.
Studies have shown that physical activity outdoors lowers blood pressure and heart rate.
Regular exercise in fresh air will help you fall asleep quicker and also improve the quality of your sleep.
Fresh outdoor air and natural light invigorate and provide energy for the mind and body.
Sunshine provides the Vitamin D that we need and also enhances energy generation in the muscles and the tissues.
Outdoor exercise stimulates all five senses in a way that indoor activities do not.
Breathing in fresh air, feeling the ground beneath your feet and taking in all the colours and sounds nature offers, are positive stimulants for the brain and body.
Measured psychological tests reported greater vitality and energy and lower episodes of anger and depression.
Exercising outdoors boosts your immune system.
Evidence suggests that being in the presence of Green and Blue spaces of nature for more than 120-150 minutes a week, correlates to good physical and mental health and wellbeing.
By enjoying exercise outdoors you can regulate your mental health and wellbeing, reducing stress and anxiety.
Here is your opportunity to experience outdoor exercise and get the tools to rest and reset your nervous system and replenish and rejuvenate your whole being.
Join me this month for Outdoor Yoga.
