Feeling "down in the dumps"?

Feeling down? ... negative, morose?

British research has found that spending just...

FIVE MINUTES exercising in nature, spent gardening, fishing, horseback riding, walking, or cycling is the optimum time it takes to improve your mood.

Researchers also found that if the activity included WATER or BLUE SKY, the result was an even bigger mental boost.

I have found that my mood has been much better of late, could it be that spending time with my wife and my son in our pool during this sunny and hot summer has been part of the reason?
