London: A jog through a forest can cut the risk of suffering from mental health problems and is twice as good as compared to a trip to the gym, a study has found.Researchers found that anything from a stroll in the park to a run through woodland can have a positive effect on people suffering from depression and anxiety.The study also showed that the positive effect on people’s mental health was 50 percent more than they might expect from going to the gym.The researchers at Glasgow University looked at natural and non-natural environments for physical activity, including walking, running and cycling, and found that being around trees and grass lowered brain stress levels, the Telegraph reported.
