Time spent in nature is never wasted...
In an exciting new urban pilot, GPs at five practices in Edinburgh are now able to prescribe nature to patients as part of their treatment, thanks to an innovative project designed by RSPB Scotland.
A “dose” of nature every week significantly boosts your mental and physical wellbeing, research suggests. Time spent connecting with a wild area could join 'five fruit a day' and '150 minutes of exercise a week' as future official health advice.
