Why going outside is good for both your business and your clients.


According to Dr Richardson head of psychology at the University of Derby. “There is already research evidence that exposure to nature can reduce high blood pressure and cardiovascular illnesses; improve vitality and mood; benefit issues of mental wellbeing such as anxiety; and restore attention capacity and mental fatigue. But more than that, feeling a part of nature has been shown to significantly correlate with life satisfaction, vitality, meaningfulness, happiness, mindfulness, and lower cognitive anxiety. 
It doesn’t matter what your core therapy is, it can be taken outside”.
