Walking or being active outside is an easy, low-cost way to boost an individual’s fitness level. It also provides numerous other health benefits. According to the Canadian Mental Health Association, one of the best ways to improve your mental well-being is by spending more time outdoors. Nature walks, for example, have been linked to increases in energy and immunity, weight loss, increases in Vitamin D production, and a decreased risk of diabetes, heart attacks, and cancer. So how can organizations use this knowledge to encourage physical activity and reduce sedentary behaviours in their workplaces?
During this webinar, Albi Sole will discuss the benefits of outdoor activities to an employee’s physical and mental well-being. He will explore why incorporating outdoor activities into an employee health promotion initiative will improve overall results, as well as share strategies that have proven successful.
