Taking time out in nature can finally give us that moment to exhale that so many of us crave.
Perhaps your daily nature fix is squeezed into a fifteen-minute walk between meetings or you are a long way from a wild, open space to lose yourself in.
Imagine, then, an uninterrupted weekend immersed in nature just far enough away that the wi-fi can’t reach you!
Nature for Physical Health
As well as giving us much needed time for ourselves, and with those we love, taking time out in nature has been found to bring an array of physical benefits.
A weekend away in a natural space will, of course, encourage us to get active and explore our surrounds. But being immersed in nature has also been found to reduce stress symptoms and improve sleep.
For children, some uninterrupted wilderness time can give them a chance to build physical confidence as they explore the natural playground of the outdoors. All that activity also makes for a good night’s sleep for little ones– a great benefit for the grown-ups!
Nature for Mental Health
Time out in nature has also been found to support our mental health too. People who feel connected to nature have been found to experience lower rates of anxiety and depression and are generally happier than those who don’t get out into nature as much
Time in nature has also been found to be hugely beneficial for children’s wellbeing and mental health with positive effects ranging from boosted creativity, learning ability and a reduction in stress and fatigue.

But perhaps one of the greatest effects of time in nature is the space it provides to connect with those you love.
Exploring together, cooking together and toasting marshmallows around an open fire all create moments of togetherness and connection – and memories that will last a lifetime.
