Hello, I'm Laura.

It all started with an experience a few years back. It was a gorgeous summer day, and I decided to lead a group exercise class outdoors. We exercised under the shade of a vast tree while the sun shone and the sky was beaming blue. A thought popped up while simultaneously noticing and being in awe of the beauty of the tree beside us; 'I feel so energized compared to exercising inside the studio- why?'. This brought me on a journey to discover green exercise, and to conduct a study of this phenomenon for my thesis. 

I started Green Blue Active because the majority of people are not getting enough physical activity to support their health, and I am passionate about health! Green Blue Active promotes the marvelous benefits of green and blue exercise and the restorative and immune-supporting properties of forests and green spaces. Hence the name: Green Blue Active

Societal stress levels and burnout are high, people are increasingly sedentary due to various factors and depression and anxiety are rising. Green Blue Active advocates that people engage in green exercise to feel more connected to nature, to give their bodies a healthy dose of exercise, and to relieve stress. There is empirical evidence connecting green exercise to a range of positive health outcomes- it's too good to miss out on when it comes to making healthy lifestyle decisions for you and your family. 

Green Blue Active enthusiastically promotes these concepts to children. It's essential that our kids learn healthy coping strategies for stress and foster resilience in our increasingly competitive society. Kids should have access to tools such as mindfulness and gratitude practices to support well-being, and the knowledge of exercising to release 'happy hormones' and improve energy and focus. 

Now it is time to increase the public perception of green and blue exercise and invite more movement in your life for health.
