Today, 11 October 2016, is Face Your Fears Day. The organisers explain, “Take a moment to consider what your life might be like if you conquered some of your greatest fears.

Green exercise in England benefits adult health to the tune of £2.2 billion a year, according to a recent study published in the journal of Preventative Medicine. Researchers from the University of Exeter Medical School and Public Health England analysed data from the world’s largest study on recreational visits to natural places, such as parks, woods and beaches. They estimated that over 8 million adults in England engage in green exercise each week, resulting in over 1.3 billion green exercise visits a year.
