Yorkshire Dales Guide to Health & Happiness

The mental health charity MIND say that spending time in green space or bringing nature into your everyday life can benefit both your mental and physical wellbeing. It can:

  • Improve your mood
  • Reduce feelings of stress or anger
  • Help you take time out and feel more relaxed
  • Improve your physical health
  • Improve your confidence and self-esteem
  • Help you be more active
  • Help you make new connections
  • Provide peer support.

You can find out more on the mental health benefits of nature from MIND here.

Dales Discoveries are an independent not-for-profit led group made up of people who live in and love the Yorkshire Dales; they created this Yorkshire Dales Guide to Health & Happiness which you can download here. The guide will inspire you to get out in the Yorkshire Dales and enjoy the landscape and nature that we have around us.
