Getting outside in the winter months

The darker winter months are known to affect how we’re feeling. That’s why, now more than ever, getting outside and embracing nature is so important.

Being outdoors, even for a few minutes a day, has been shown   to improve your mood, help you relax and reduce stress. That’s why particularly in these times, we should all try to make the time to get outdoors every day, or at least a few times a week.

Stepping outside is also a great chance to connect with others that you may pass on your walk. Saying ‘hello’ to someone outdoors can be great at helping to fight feelings of loneliness and make you feel more connected to your community. 

Being outside also lets you be more mindful and appreciate  your surroundings. Try to save your texts or phone calls for  when you’re back home. Bundle up in some warm clothes, take a walk in your local park or watch the sunset, and take  notice of what’s around you. 

And don’t forget to have a hot chocolate and a warm blanket waiting for you when you get back inside.
