john muir trust logoIt is a fact that our interaction with wild places has a positive impact on our mental health and wellbeing.  Whether you’ve had a really busy week at work, or have longer term health issues, getting out in wild and natural places on a regular basis will help you relieve stress, improve your mood and generally make you feel better in yourself.

The John Muir Trust aims to inspire people from all walks of life to experience the benefits of wild places, including the positive health and wellbeing impacts that can be gained through enjoying and caring for nature.  So rather than settling for pictures on the TV or your phone, see things with your own eyes and hear nature with your own ears.

The Five Ways to Wellbeing are evidence-based actions to improve mental health and wellbeing developed by the New Economics Foundation. See the John Muir Trust’s Five Ways to Wellbeing document to find out why wild nature offers an ideal setting to explore the Five Ways, and shares ideas for putting them into action.
