As we recover from the Covid-19 pandemic, getting outdoors is a wonderful way to boost one’s mental health.
Numerous studies have found spending time with nature is highly beneficial. Forests in particular are highly soothing environments, with everything from the sounds of bird song to the scent of the trees and the sunlight filtering through the leaves bringing a sense of renewal and comfort.
Forest therapy helps people to forge an emotional connection to an outdoor landscape, helping to strengthen their link to the natural world. This is what’s also known as ‘green mental health’.
Becoming certified in outdoor therapy will help you share the benefits of nature with vulnerable people.
