The Healing Powers Of Nature
For thousands of years, our ancestors have used nature to heal both physically & mentally.
Still, to this day after all our medical & scientific discoveries, nature has proven to be the best option overall.
Being outdoors has MANY benefits, below we are going to go over the 5 main reasons why it's good to spend time in Nature!
1. Relieve Stress
2. Increase Vitamin D
3. Calm Your Mind
4. Strengthen Immunity
5. Reduce Inflammation
Stress can tear up a healthy mind and immune system. High levels of stress are associated with depression, obesity, and high blood pressure.
Stress is unhealthy, especially when not managed properly. Luckily, there is a natural stress reliever right outside.
Spending time in nature relieves stress, dramatically. the stress hormone, "cortisol" is naturally lowered from Bloodstream levels after spending time outside.
The results suggest regular trips outdoors are a reliable way to manage stress, easily. Experiences in nature are low-cost and accessible to everyone.
Increase Vitamin D
An estimated 40% of U.S. men and women are vitamin D deficient, which can lead to some pretty scary health implications, including depression, cancer, and osteoporosis.
Your bones, blood cells, and immune system need to have plenty of Vitamin D.
Regular sun exposure is the best source of vitamin D.
It helps your body absorb more of certain minerals, like calcium and phosphorus, which help your bones stay healthy as well as your muscles and heart! Your body easily makes it when you are in the sunlight.
Calm Your Mind
Anxiety and depression can be crippling, especially if you're not getting out of the house!
Most physicians and therapists recommend regular trips in nature to find calmness.
Getting the recommended time outdoors can help ease emotional and mental pain while improving mood.
There are several physical responses our bodies have while in nature.
Sitting outside can reduce blood pressure, lower heart rate, and decrease cortisol levels.
When we are outside our body slows down, helping us feel peaceful and calm, our minds work similarly. Spending time outside improves mood and reduces feelings of anxiety.
We can focus better in nature, and our improved concentration can help us address whatever is causing the feelings of stress and anxiety.
Our self-esteem can also receive a boost after time spent wandering outdoors. Peace and mental clarity are big reasons why being outside is important.
Staying indoors can harm your immune health.
The immune system works best when challenged regularly. That doesn’t happen when we spend time indoors.
Healthy doses of nature will help prepare your body to fight. Here’s how it works.
A study published in 2010 evaluated the effect of being outdoors in the forest, on immune function. For a group of Japanese adults, a three-day trip to the forest increased the number of white blood cells in their blood.
These levels of white blood cells stayed elevated for more than 30 days after their adventure in the woods. Amazing right!
White blood cells are crucial to your immune system, they help your body battle germs by recognizing pathogens and harmful intruders with the help of antibodies.
The boost in immunity from a trip into nature can help keep you feeling healthy.
For active individuals increased immunity is a valuable asset in a healthy lifestyle. Strengthening your body’s natural germ-fighting power with a regular trip into the wild is fun and adventurous so get out there today!
Inflammation has been linked to a host of health problems, from autoimmune disorders to depression and even cancer.
Various studies have shown that spending time in green spaces reduces inflammation.
Men and women of all ages can benefit from the natural inflammation-buster of simply venturing outside.
