30x30 nature challenge 2013We hope everyone is looking forward to the Inter-Hospital Health Challenge. Only 8 more days until it begins!! http://www.ihhc2013.com

The David Suzuki Foundation has organized Canada’s 30×30 Nature Challenge to enhance employee health and well-being. This challenge occurs in May and we are encouraging staff to spend 30 minutes a day outside in nature. Over the last decade, researchers have realized what most of us know intuitively:
nature is good for our health and wellbeing. It is well documented that being
regularly immersed in a natural setting, like a park, woodland or forest, can lower
blood pressure, anxiety and stress levels, and boost immunity. ‘Green time’ has
also been shown to reduce feelings of anger and depression, while increasing
energy, creativity and attention span. 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. Sign up today at: http://30×30.davidsuzuki.org/
