Connecting with nature and being active outdoors improves people's health and wellbeing.
The benefits and positive outcomes include weight management, preventing chronic diseases such as diabetes and hypertension, and improving mental health by reducing stress and anxiety.
Communal outdoor activities can also promote and create social connections with others again supporting and enhancing our wellbeing.
In addition to encouraging people to use their green spaces to benefit wellbeing, a nature wellbeing network of partners are collaborating with GPs and the health service to support health and wellbeing in our communities through a 'nature wellbeing prescribing' pilot programme.
