Getting outdoors in nature is highly beneficial for psychological health – at all ages.
In Part 1 of this mini-series, I summarised recent research demonstrating the benefits of better nutrition – specifically, increased consumption of fruits, vegetables, mushrooms and legumes – for reducing the risk of developing depression and anxiety, and hastening recovery from these increasingly prevalent conditions.
In Part 2, I delved into recent research on the link between physical activity and the prevention and treatment of depression and anxiety.
And now, in Part 3, I’m going to take you on a guided tour of recent research on the effect of getting outdoors on mood and anxiety.
