I'm shocked by this statistic....!

I was listening to the radio this morning and heard them quoting results from a study that 9 out of 10 women over 30 don't/won't exercise outside....


I found the article on the "mind" website and it was actually written a year ago so may be a bit out of date BUT the survey was taken by 1450 women in England. It doesn't say if it was a varied selection of women or not but whatever their backgrounds were I'm genuinely shocked 90% of them won't exercise outside.

So the big question is does this apply to Scotland too and if so how can we change this? Answers on a postcard please! Mind actually suggests sending a nature date card to a friend to get them outside for a walk in the great outdoors.


I'm off to see what else I can find out - after a bit of gardening!
