Building Wellbeing: What better way to reduce stress and increase wellbeing than by spending time in nature?

According to the Stress Management Society, The British Heart Foundation and mental health charity, Mind, just 20 minutes per day of simply being outdoors in nature can improve mental wellbeing and reduce stress.

The onsite team at Manchester’s Workman-managed Great Northern are running multiple ongoing projects to provide a greener, more natural environment for residents and visitors to enjoy, and to encourage wildlife and insects back to the site to create a biodiverse environment, with a mix of plants across different areas of the site.

This has included creating new planting areas, sandpits and playhouses and adding planters with insect-friendly plants, along with floral installations for seasonal events, which mean the environment buzzes with life.
