Green Exercise PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Green Exercise free pdf The concept of Green Exercise (GE) has now been widely adopted and implies a synergistic health benefit of being active in the presence of nature. This book aims to provide a balanced overview and synthesis text on all aspects of GE and integrate evidence from many different disciplines including physiology, psychology, sociology and the environmental sciences. It describes the impact of GE on human health and well-being through all stages of the life course and covers a wide spectrum from cellular processes such as immune function through to facilitating human behavioural change. It demonstrates the utilisation of GE for activity and education purposes in both schools and the workplace, as well as its therapeutic properties. Examples as an effective intervention for vulnerable groups and promoting healthy ageing include wilderness therapy, therapeutic horticulture and the use of forests and water. Chapters also integrate cross-cutting key themes which are relevant to all stages of the life course and have significantly contributed to the GE research base, such as forest bathing and blue exercise. The book also explores the future of GE, the way in which research can be used to influence green design and planning and how health and environmental agendas can be integrated to enable GE to be more widely used as a mechanism for improving health.
