Take your exercise outside to boost your mood
Tuesday, 23 February · 1 min read

Bored of working out at the gym or in the same spot in your living room?

It turns out fresh air isn’t the only good thing about exercising outside. Also known as “green exercise”, an outdoor workout has a number of benefits.

Some studies suggest that moving your body outdoors can help improve your mood. That’s because the extra exposure to sunlight can increase vitamin D production, which may lift your mood.

So, why not connect with nature, take in some views and soak up the rays during your next workout?

It can be a run up a hill or a circuit training session in your local park, a gentle walk around the block or even just a few laps of the garden.
