Virkistysvartti pysäytti totaalisesti päivän aikana päässä pyörineet ajatukset ja toi rentoutumisen tunteen.

It’s nice to have someone call you up and motivate you to get outside and guide you through some restorative exercises in nature, physical or mental. Much more effective than using an app! It’s like letting off steam with a friend while going for a walk, something that’s not possible for all us, particularly at the moment. A real boost for the day or even for the week.
