Naturally Healthy Month May 2017
Access to green space benefits both physical and mental health. Tentative estimates suggest that a 1% fall in sedentary behaviour could produce nearly £2 billion in benefits through reduction in coronary heart disease, cancers, stroke, depression and anxiety. May 2017 has been designated as Naturally Healthy Month during this month a range of organisations are running activities in green spaces throughout Somerset so that people can enjoy the natural environment around them and feel the benefits of enhanced wellbeing.
