The Benefits of Escaping to a Relaxing Forest

By Kathryn Slade Friends Walking In Woods

"Here's your prescription, walk in the forest five times a week for an hour."

According to a recent US study your Doctor could soon prescribe you fresh air to help cure problems. The study found that immersing yourself in nature might ease the mind by reducing rumination where negative thoughts get stuck on repeat.

Brain scans done by the team at Stanford University showed reduced activity in an area of the brain linked to risk of mental illness in participants who took a 90-minute walk among oaks, birds and squirrels.

Here at Bluestone we have plenty of all of those things with our own forest land for exploring and adventuring through! It’s not just Stanford University who are saying how good being in the fresh air is for you, a study conducted in 24 forests across Japan found that walking among trees lowered blood pressure, pulse rate, and levels of the hormone cortisol, which is released in response to stress.
