Boost your mood this summer by exploring outdoors

Getting back to nature is a proven mood booster, so step outside and get happy!

As the summer stretches ahead of us, we are faced with endless possibilities of how to spend our free time.

With more than three in four of us craving more time spent outdoors*, why not take a break and take the chance to reconnect with nature?

Here are five of our favourite ways to embrace the great outdoors:

Take a detour

Instead of your usual route to the shops, why not take a detour through your local park? The sun on your back, the sight of the beautiful shrubbery and the long-lasting scent of vibrant flowers is sure to boost your mood.

Exercise outdoors

The beauty of exercising outdoors is the space you're in. Swap the screen of the treadmill for the beautiful scenery as you breathe in the fresh air around you. Perhaps practice outdoor yoga to help feel both revitalised and balanced.

Take up a new skill

Gardening can be soothing and great for stress relief. As you tend to your plants, take the time to breathe in the fragrant air, feel the earth between your fingers, and listen to the bird song as you go.

Capture the moments of nature
