Go Wild and Get Happy

Walking is good for you. Seasoned walkers will tell you this time and time again, but it’s nice to have it confirmed by scientific studies from time to time. The latest evidence comes from The Wildlife Trusts via an impact study of its 30 Days Wild campaign. The UK’s first month-long nature challenge saw sustained increases in participants’ happiness and health through connections with nature such as feeding the birds and countryside walks.


30dayswildMore than 18,500 people took part in The Wildlife Trusts’ 30 Days Wild challenge, undertaking around 300,000 Random Acts of Wildness throughout June 2015. People let their lawns grow wild, danced in the rain, went star-gazing and, of course, enjoyed thousands of walks to discover local nature such as wild flowers and bird song.

Two months after taking part in 30 Days Wild, the number of people reporting their health as excellent increased by over 30%. The results of the study saw increases in participants’ connection to nature (up 25%), conservation behaviours (up 10%), health (up 8%) and happiness (up 9%). Read the full results at
