Outdoor families are happier families

Families who enjoy the outdoors together are happier, a study from Illinois University has shown, giving us yet another reason to leave technology behind and get outside altogether as a family. 

Enjoying time outdoors with your family doesn't have to be hard work or expensive. It can include a trip to your local park, a walk in the countryside, walking the dog together or playing in the garden. There's plenty of research that shows the enormous benefits of being out in nature as an individual but this study shows how this can also improve family life and wellbeing. 

Build more quality outdoor time into family life and you may find you are all less irritable and moments together are more relaxed and enjoyable. 

For those seeking more ways to spend quality outdoor time together as a family, take a look at our range of outdoor adventure family holidays in the UK and Europe. Our action-packed, all inclusive adventure holidays offer maximum time outdoors; the best way to relax and have fun with your family.
