Two of the toughest challenges in picking up an exercise routine are persistence and perseverance. Sound familiar?
We all know – and read everywhere, day in, day out – how good exercise can be for us. It does not just boost our mood (especially at this time of the year when eating and drinking seems to become the norm, along with watching rubbish on the telly) but it also strengthens our mental wellbeing. Exactly what the doctor would prescribe given the grey skies and the shorter periods of daylight.
Light deprivation during the winter months and its knock-on effects can have quite a debilitating effect on us all. Outdoor exercise, or ecotherapy as it is referred to in a wider context, can be as effective as antidepressants to counteract negative thoughts and anxiety. Unlike the gym or other enclosed environments, the great outdoors stimulates our senses. Such exposure to the colours, sounds and smells of nature can boost confidence and self-esteem, both of which are natural precursors to those two challenges mentioned at the start: persistence and perseverance.
Getting physically fit and achieving personal goals then follow on more easily.
