Because when we get outside, something amazing happens. You can feel it. It can make us feel more energized and help us manage stress and strengthen our families. We think the world could use a little more of that. And we have the research to back it up.
According to a 2019 study, urban dwellers who spent just 10 minutes connecting with nature three times a week experienced lower stress levels.
1450 kids answered questions about how much time they spend outside, and their outdoor time strongly correlated with their parents’ outdoor time.
A 2017 study found that people living in neighborhoods with higher levels of vegetation cover and birds also had reduced stress.
A North American study found that young adults experienced an increase in vitality after a 15-minute walk in nature that they did not experience after a walk indoors.
A U.K. study found that people who exercise indoors instead of outdoors experience higher rates of anxiety.
