Lisbeth Kronsted Lund is a Danish based MA in outdoor social sciences and lifestyle blogger who’s insights and inspirational writings includes physical and outdoor education, physical cultures, sustainability and health.

Lisbeth has written a co-authored journal article that touches on the way in which experiencing the wild seascapes of the Outer Hebrides by sea-kayak, provides and engages different forms of vitality, wellbeing and embodiment than non-wild places.

A great deal of benefits of outdoor recreation are well-known, but more needs to be known about the links between physical and mental health and the sea-environment.
