Enjoy a healthy daily dose of nature

You know that exercise, fresh air and sunshine is good for you, but there are even more reasons why we should spend time each day—even just 15 minutes—outdoors.

Nature is simply good for your wellbeing. Let’s count the ways.

  • Being outside in nature can improve your mood.
  • Surrounding yourself with nature can increase creativity.
  • When we’re outside, we’re more likely to do be active, like walk, toss a Frisbee, or take a bike ride, so along with a good dose of nature, we’re getting exercise as well.

Enjoying the great outdoors doesn’t have to be hiking a mountain range or paddling on a remote river. Parks, urban recreation trails and green spaces are ideal places to escape to the natural world around you. Best of all, if you pack a bag lunch or picnic cooler, you can admire the trees, flowers and birds while you eat. And speaking of eating, we have great ideas for lunches, whether you’re beneath a lovely tree in a park or at your desk after a lunchtime stroll. We recommend Sargento® Blends™ Cheese Slices, which will take your tastebuds on a flavor journey.
