Get outside, get in nature & move your body.
When life stressors occur, taking time to be in nature allows us to realign & heal. As humans we are capable of amazing things, one of which is the ability to heal ourselves.
Perspective: an open wound on our body – our cells work endlessly to repair & heal the wound bringing our body back to a natural balance.
Same applies to our mind & body.
Immersing yourself in nature creates equilibrium for our mind & body.
Research shows plants and trees emit phytoncides – a chemical plants naturally produce to protect themselves from harmful bacteria and parasites.
When humans breathe in fresh air and phytoncides it naturally increases our white blood cell count and activity – protecting our body from harmful virus infected cells. One of many health benefits from immersing ourselves in nature.
Here are a few:
Increases immune function
Naturally lowers stress levels by reducing stress hormones – resulting in lower blood pressure
Fresh air and Dopamine eases anxiety – improving mood- resulting in improved sleep quality & mental clarity.
Immerse yourself in nature and there you will find yourself. Taking time to slow down and enjoy the simplicity of earth’s natural beauty truly allows us to connect back to ourselves. It is easy to get lost and overwhelmed in the noise of today’s society – invest 20 minutes a day to move your body and be in nature to drastically enhance your quality of life.
You are your greatest investment.
