Show Notes

Spending time in nature may be enough to help you feel healthier and happier. In what seems like one of the most common sense studies ever a study published in Nature, analysed over 20,000 people in England and their self reported health and wellbeing. It showed that any time in nature leads to benefits, and that the benefits to health and wellbeing seemed to peak at 200-300 minutes and showed no additional benefit thereafter.

Whilst the health benefits of nature have been long known this appears to be the first time that it has been quantified in the research, telling us exactly how much may be beneficial and the good news is that it isn’t a huge amount of time.
