A strong body of evidence now shows that exposure to nature has positive health and well-being benefits. Nature promotes stress recovery, protects from future stresses and improves concentration and ability to think clearly. It is also well established that regular physical activity has both physical and psychological health benefits. Therefore, knowing that both physical activity and nature independently enhance health, the term Green Exercise was coined to signify the synergistic health benefits derived from being active in green or natural places (Pretty et al., 2005).
