We have been following one of our clients over the past month enjoying his outings on a one to one basis with our team.
At YOU-CAS we encourage the client’s independence and assist them in going to some of their favourite places as it does wonders for their mental health and wellbeing.
A few benefits are:
- reducing stress levels – Researchers in Holland and Japan have found that as little as 20-30 mins exposure to nature a day can significantly reduce cortisol levels.
- Boost your mood – Various studies have shown that exposure to natural light can help improve your mood and improve your self-esteem. Mother Nature’s outdoor playground is the perfect antidote to a blue mood.
- Physical wellbeing – as simple thing as getting your steps up can help your physical health keeping you active as well as it releasing the ‘happy chemical’ Endorphins, which also in turn relieve stress and pain.
- Help Fight Depression & Anxiety – Researchers at Stanford noted that participants who spend time in nature showed less neural activity in the part of the brain associated with depression compared to their urban counterparts.
We are very lucky to be located in such a beautiful area surrounded by beaches at a stones throw away.
One of our client’s favourite places to go is Swanage. Whether you jump on the ferry and sail across, or take the scenic route in the car, there is so much scenery to take in.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, when you see his smile it just makes our day.
