We’d like you to stop reading this article right now…
Take a moment to sit and think about some of the places and experiences you’ve had in your life which have been the most engaging and exhilarating. Think about where you used to play as a child, what the places looked & smelled like…
OK, so if you’re like us, your mind started to drift to some tall tree forests, beaches or lakes. When was the last time you were in those places? Recently we hope…
There’s mounting science to suggest “Forest Bathing” is good for boosting the immune system, lowering blood pressure, reducing stress, improving mood, increasing the ability to focus, accelerating recovery from surgery or illness, and improving sleep… amongst other things (source: NY State Department of Environmental Conservation). So…. shouldn’t we be doing it more, rather than less?
The problem is particularly evident in our children too.
Well that’s something we want to change over at Volunteer Impact HQ. Not only do we want to encourage more people into volunteering because it’s good for our planet, but because it’s good for you too. Whilst you’re outdoors working and learning at restoration projects, you’re also likely to be regenerating areas of land for our & future generations to enjoy - win win win win win….
So, go on - make a promise now to get away from the screen, unplug and get into the wild.
