The warm spring and summer sun is often enough of a reason to get outside, but for those who need more inspiration, experts say that a brisk walk can reduce stress and prevent illness. In fact, a new study shows that if every U.S. adult over 40 walked an additional 10 minutes each day, 110,000 deaths would be prevented in the country each year.

#1 Go For A Walk

Having plants in your home or  office can be a source of pleasure. Indoor gardening relieves stress, boosts creativity, productivity, and focus, and promotes recovery. There’s some evidence that houseplants may positively influence the air quality in your home as well.

#2 Adopt Some Plants

There’s certainly a feeling of accomplishment when you harvest something you grew with your own hands, but that natural high isn’t merely pride: It’s also the result of mood-altering soil bacteria entering your bloodstream. The feel-good bacterium, Mycobacterium vaccae,  is harmless and according to a 2019 study has anti-inflammatory, immunoregulatory, and stress resilience properties. Neat, right?

#3 Grow Your Own Food

While many people initially find the prospect of redecoration daunting  it can be a source of motivation  and inspiration. A redecoration project can motivate you as a homeowner to improve the look  and feel of your property along with giving you a nice mood boost with the revitalized space.

Farmer's markets have fruits and vegetables at the peak of the growing season. This means produce is at its freshest and tastes the best. As a bonus, you even get to take advantage of the nice weather while perusing the available goods!

#5 Visit Your Local Farmer's Market

The health benefits of nature are a pretty astonishing list. Researchers have linked exposure to the outdoors with a lower risk of cardiovascular disease, obesity, diabetes, and  asthma hospitalizations. It's also been shown to decrease stress and boost happiness, both of which are crucial for maintaining good mental health and fighting depression and anxiety.
