Spending time outside can lower blood pressure, reduce stress and help you be more mindful. And studies have even shown that getting outside can help you sleep better, especially if you are doing some light physical activity like walking. Penn Park features 24 acres of green space along the Schuylkill River filled with fields, tennis courts and a system of pathways that stretch from Walnut Street to South Street, all within Penn’s campus. Enjoy the outdoors and some beautiful views of Center City all while stretching your legs!

It can be hard to find free time for you, making it a high priority is a gift to give yourself. Go for a long walk, get a blow out, or enjoy a good movie. The more you can work in self-care, the better you’ll feel living your best life.
