According to a growing body of research, getting outside makes us healthier and happier. People who live in neighborhoods near green spaces show lower rates of depression. Time spent in nature is known to temper stress and keep blood pressure in check. As part of our ongoing Weekly Escape series, in which we transport you from your desk to an incredible place in two minutes or less, we head to North Somerset, England. In Spring 2016, Andy Ballard shot this footage of a forest floor covered in bluebells. Watch, relax, and feel better.
