  • I live with my back yard that turns into a wooded area. Except for my eating issues with white refined sugar sweets, my life is pretty stress free. I fall asleep each night being sung a lullaby through the frogs and wake up each morning the the beautiful praises of the song birds!!!!! And the best part, is when during the night, you hear the howling of the wolves!!!!!

    Yep, life next to the woods is pretty sweet!!!!! I wouldn't trade it for anything place else. - 5/29/2015 10:54:35 AM
  • Great article. Love all the ideas and suggestions listed. - 4/30/2015 1:20:09 PM
  • I live in a beautiful community built around a lake. It is 3 miles from our house, around the lake and back home. My goal is to be able to do that again. Haven't done it in many years!

    Meanwhile, I think I will go for a 5 - 10 minute walk outdoors!

    Article has inspired me! - 4/17/2015 2:22:50 PM
  • This is an awesome article with lots of information. I love being outside. I walk my dogs twice sometimes three times a day, rain or shine! :D It just does a body good to be outside in the sunshine instead of inside!

  • Hiking and gardening are my favorites! :) - 3/17/2015 5:02:02 PM
  • I knew I was lucky to live in a city with a lot of green space -- now I know why! - 2/27/2015 10:57:36 AM
    It's amazing what a difference getting outside can make - even if it is just for a few minutes. I am lucky to both live and work near green space, but I am not so good at taking the time to go there!

    I also found that my annual tent-camping trips were a wonderful way to rejuvenate - even if I don't do anything ambitious on the trip. For the last few years I haven't been able to get away - and now I have stress and depression problems...a coincidence?? - 1/5/2015 7:57:15 AM
  • I 100% believe this, and especially think that it is important for kids to be getting outside as much as possible. I have stated an initiative to get kids outdoors after school learning about natural science through art. if you you like to help this program take off, learn more about it at it's kickstarter page here:

  • I need to take this article to heart and keep getting outside despite the cold this winter. I may need to get some different workout clothes. - 11/26/2014 10:58:58 AM
  • I love being outside! If I'm feeling stressed or anxious a walk is better than any medication! - 11/19/2014 11:29:01 AM
  • I could benefit from a boost to my well-being today! I plan to take my dog and go out for a few minutes. I'm dealing with a bit of a cold so I will not overdo--good article! My favorite outside activity is weeding!! - 11/16/2014 12:59:16 PM
  • I love hiking in the woods it is so restorative. The chance encounters with wildlife is also exhilarating. Over the summer, my son and I were hiking and came upon a moose and its young. So awesome! - 11/12/2014 12:02:42 PM
