Take a forest break!

Exposure to forests and trees helps decrease mental fatigue by relaxing and restoring the mind, while boosting serotonin levels to improve energy and mood.

In fact, countless studies have indicated that being closer to green areas is associated with decreased anxiety and lower psychological distress. Trees are also beneficial for kids’ mental health. In fact, children who spend time in nature are often more relaxed and attentive, which can improve learning and performance in school.

Planning to visit a forest? Before you go, check with the local state forestry agency regarding forest rules and other pertinent visitor information. Make sure to bring water, sun protection and weather/outdoor-appropriate gear to safely enjoy your forest break.
