Adult Wellbeing in Nature
Spending time amongst trees and plants has many health and wellbeing benefits.
Being amongst green leaves has a calming effect on our bodies and minds. Research has shown that time in nature reduces our blood pressure, lowers stress and boosts our immune system. The benefits are even more significant when we get involved in outdoor activities with others. You start to feel more confident, less socially isolated and simply happier!
ARC’s Wellbeing in Nature sessions brings these elements together, helping you to be active in nature and spend time with others to improve your physical and mental health.
ARC have been delivering Wellbeing in Nature sessions for over 8 years. These were established initially at Foundry Wood and have grown from there…Previously we called these sessions ‘Ecotherapy’.
