GET HEALTHY, GET OUTDOORS
Getting out to nature is important. Getting out really helps to build a healthy life. The importance of nature in our lives is invaluable.
Here are 7 reasons why being outside is important:
Drop Your Stress
Stress is unhealthy when not managed properly. Spending time in nature lowers our stress. Being in nature, or just looking at a garden or trees or going for a walk, even the smell of a flower has been proven to decrease stress and increase relaxation.
Helps You Focus
Our problem-solving skills, cognitive functions and creative arts are all tied to connection with nature. When you are out of your comfort zone faced with new possibilities like hiking, camping or even walking your brain operates in a different way. This kinds of new experiences can provide new sights and help you become more creative in different aspects of life.
Boost Your Health
Nature isn’t a miracle cure for diseases. But by interacting with it, spending time in it and experiencing it can reap the benefits of feeling happier and healthier.
Experts agree that the closer someone lived to a green space the healthier that person likely to be.
Today children’s spends more than four hours a day with electronic media and suffer from various vision problems. At least in children, a fairly large body of research has found that outdoor activity has a protective effect on the eyes, reducing the risk of developing nearsightedness (myopia).
Upswing Your Memory
Our urban life is full of traffic, noises & lights. These things can take away our attention in several directions. This makes it hard to sharpen our mind and recollect things we just learned. Grasping new information in a peaceful and natural setting may help to boost your short-term memory.
Protecting The Natural World
When we spend time outdoors we humans feel more connected to each other and the world at large. Stronger feelings of belonging give both adults and children more reason to protect the world in which we live.
Good For Nature, Good For You
The positive effects of nature even extend to our happiness. Studies strongly suggest that kids who spend more time outdoors are more physically active. Immerse yourself in natural surroundings by replacing time spent inside on electronic devices.
People get to experience the change of the seasons; feel the sun, wind and rain on their skin; blissful experiences that can’t be replaced by even the best virtual reality. That great is the importance of nature in our lives.
Now, get out and embrace our Mother Nature so you can be healthy for good!
