Have you been outside today?
Biophilia is a way humans can connect with themselves through nature. It is that mesmerising shift we feel when we walk through a fresh rainforest or soak our feet in the healing water of the ocean. Connection with the earth we walk on is an important aspect of our own balance, it creates a calm and nurtured human being.
Here are 6 benefits of exercising outdoors:
  1. fresh air has more oxygen
  2. Greenscapes raise serotonin levels
  3. Triggers primal regions of our brain and psyche
  4. More sensory stimulation
  5. Increases feelings of well-being and lowers depression
  6. Sun exposure increases vitamin D levels and helps to optimise hormones
