Studies show: A walk in the forest is pure medicine!

Here is three scientifically proven health effects.

1. Relieves fatigue depression

A study from Umeå University shows that each visit in a forest increased the mental health and attention of the participants.

2. Lowers blood pressure
A Japanese study got a group of volunteers to take a two-hour walk – one day in a forest and the next in a city. The amount of stress hormones in their systems were significantly lower following the walk in the forest.

3. Prevents depression
A study from Stanford University, USA, shows that a 90-minute walk in forest or fields can prevent depression. The effect is measured in brain activity and the participants own experience.
