David Suzuki's May Nature Challenge post by Gail Vaz-Oxlade
A perfect challenge for gardeners.
May is just around the corner and you’ll want to sign up for the 30 x 30 Nature Challenge. Over the last decade, researchers have realized what most of us know intuitively: nature is good for us! It is well documented that being regularly immersed in a natural setting, like a park, field or forest, can lower blood pressure, anxiety and stress levels, and boost immunity. ‘Green time’ has also been shown to reduce feelings of anger and depression, while increasing energy, creativity and even generosity.
Living in the digital age, most of us spend too much time in front of screens and little time outdoors. It’s time for us all to get outside. During the month of May, the David Suziki foundation is asking Canadians to pledge to spend 30 minutes in nature every day for 30 days.
The 30×30 Nature Challenge begins on May 1. You can sign up online at www.davidsuzuki.org and registration will stay open throughout the challenge so it’s never too late to join!
