Happy Earth Day!!

earth-dayThe Wellness Centre would like to wish everyone a very Happy Earth Day!!

Research has shown that nature can improve our health and well-being. Spending time outdoors can lower blood pressure, while also decreasing stress and anxiety. This year the UHN will be participating in the 30×30 Nature Challenge during the month of May. This challenge was organized by the David Suzuki Foundation and ties in perfectly with the Inter-Hospital Health Challenge. Since IHHC participants will be earning points for being active and reducing stress, why not do your activities outdoors and enjoy the many benefits of nature. You can earn points for being active, staying hydrated, eating well and participating in stress reducing activities. To join our team please visit http://www.ihhc2013.com

As well, an article in BBC News today discusses the many benefits of living in a green area for both the individual and community. To read more please visit: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-22214070
