Embrace National Outdoors Month: Discover the Benefits of Getting Outside


With June marking National Outdoors Month, it’s the perfect time to celebrate the beauty and benefits of spending time in nature.

Living in England means we’re accustomed to unpredictable weather, but that shouldn’t deter us from getting outside and embracing the elements. Rain or shine, there are countless ways to make the most of the great outdoors and enjoy the beauty of nature.

Here in SE16, we’re fortunate to have stunning green spaces right on our doorstep, including Russia Dock Woodland and Stave Hill. These local gems offer a welcome retreat from the hustle and bustle of city life, providing opportunities for peaceful walks, invigorating runs and of course our Bootcamp SE16 sessions.

Why It Matters:

Physical Health: Outdoor activities offer a plethora of physical benefits, from improved cardiovascular health to increased vitamin D absorption. Whether it’s a brisk walk in the park or a challenging hike in the countryside, getting outdoors is a fantastic way to stay active and boost your overall well-being.

Mental Well-being: Nature has a remarkable ability to soothe the mind and lift the spirits. Studies have shown that spending time outdoors can reduce stress, anxiety, and depression, while promoting feelings of relaxation and happiness. So, next time you’re feeling overwhelmed, step outside and let nature work its magic.

Connection to Nature: In today’s fast-paced world, it’s all too easy to become disconnected from the natural world around us. National Outdoors Month serves as a timely reminder to rekindle our connection to nature, fostering a greater appreciation for the environment and the wonders it has to offer.

How to Get Outdoors More:

Explore Local Parks: Take advantage of the green spaces in your area by exploring local parks, nature reserves, and trails. Whether you’re going for a jog, having a picnic, or simply taking a leisurely stroll, spending time in nature is a wonderful way to unwind and recharge.

Try Outdoor Workouts: Break free from the confines of the gym and take your workout outside. Bootcamp SE16 offers a range of outdoor fitness classes that allow you to enjoy the fresh air while breaking a sweat.

Plan Outdoor Adventures: Make the most of weekends and free time by planning outdoor adventures with friends and family. Whether it’s a day at the beach, a countryside hike, or a camping trip under the stars, immersing yourself in nature is sure to create lasting memories and moments of joy.

Connect with Community: Joining outdoor clubs or group activities is a fantastic way to meet like-minded individuals and explore new outdoor pursuits. Whether you’re into cycling, kayaking, or birdwatching, there’s a community out there waiting to welcome you with open arms.

Let’s Make It Happen:

This National Outdoors Month, let’s make a commitment to embrace the beauty of the natural world and reap the countless benefits it has to offer. Whether it’s a leisurely walk in the park or an adrenaline-fuelled workout, let’s step outside, breathe in the fresh air, and connect with the world around us.

Here’s to a month filled with outdoor exploration, adventure, and appreciation!
