The Healing Power of Nature
Getting out in nature is a great antidote for the “hustle and bustle” of modern life. Just a stroll in a local park will do, or a jaunt in a wilder or more “unmanicured” natural setting is even better. I strive to do get a dose of this at least once a day. It doesn’t work if you’re staring at your phone.
It may seem obvious that spending time in nature would have mental benefits, but there are physical health benefits as well, as discussed in this video. The mental and physical positive effects are why forest bathing, which is essentially spending time in a forest preserve, is becoming so popular in Japan and other parts of Asia.
