Along with an increase in physical activity, outdoor recreation offers the chance to socialize, an important benefit in itself. For instance, birdwatching incorporates several activities, including the physical movement of walking, interpreting visual and auditory input, and speaking to other birdwatchers, according to a 2010 report from Resources for the Future. The report also notes that social settings of outdoor spaces, especially urban parks, are associated with positive experiences. Outdoor physical activity can also increase pride in the community, as well as offer the chance to meet people with similar interests, says Kent State University professor Andrew Lepp.

Outdoor activities lead to an increased confidence, improved creativity and better self-esteem, according to Lepp. Natural settings rejuvenate and calm the mind, improve outlook and increase positive affect. In contrast, artificial environments may cause feelings of exhaustion, irritability, inattentiveness and impulsivity, according to Resources for the Future. Outdoor time can even help you focus; 2009 research in the “Journal of Attention Disorders” shows that 20-minute walks through natural settings lead to improved concentration.
