When we stop and think, we all know that nature is good for us – but how often do we stop and think? The Wildlife Trusts’ My Wild Life campaign is encouraging everyone to stop for a minute to reflect on what wildlife means to us and think about how to make wildlife part of our everyday lives. If we did this, not only would wildlife benefit, but so would we – because contact with nature is good for us. Those people lucky enough to live near and experience green spaces have a 50% chance of being more healthy – both physically and mentally and are 40% less likely to become overweight or obese.
