In various studies around the world scientists have proven that spending 20 minutes among trees or in nature every day significantly reduces the risk of cardiovascular and stress related diseases. Research has shown the rehabilitative effects of fresh air and the calming effect that living around trees has on individuals with both physical and psychological illnesses and ailments.
Many studies have outlined the contributions of trees, woodlands and green spaces to people’s overall health and well-being. The benefits have been categorized in a range of ways but primarily include physical, psychological and social well-being. Benefits can be gained not only by being active in nature (e.g. walking or cycling), but also by being near it in the course of everyday activities. Studies have further demonstrated that even just viewing nature, for example looking at a tree from a window, can have significant benefits for human health and wellbeing.
