Nature is the Best Therapy
Nature is the best therapy
Lately I have been walking in nature at the park near me. Initially it was very difficult for me to do these walks alone as I was the type of person that always needed to be entertained to be motivated. One day I was supposed to meet friends for the walk and they did not turn up so I decided to walk alone. That was the beginning of a great journey in spending time alone in nature.
The 10 benefits of walking:
- Reconnect with you
It is so important to spend time alone to reconnect with yourself. To just stop for a while. Quiet time away from the chaos of life helps you take time away and slow down.
- Great for the body
It is great exercise for the body. You lose weight, feel energetic and feel toned.
- Great for the brain
It is amazing for the brain. It calms the brain down.
- Relieves stress symptoms
Relieves stress, anxiety and overwhelm. Walking boosts endorphins the feel good hormones that improve our moods and lowers stress and other symptoms.
- Appreciate nature
Gives you time to appreciate nature around you. So healing! We connect with other living things.
- Listen to messages from the universe
Great time to listen to the messages we receive from the universe/God. We get clarity in nature. A lot of my aha moments have come in the park. This is a walking meditation.
- Refuels your tanks
Nature replenishes us. It refuels your tank. After a long walk I feel ready and motivated to move forward.
- Connect with others
We meet new people on our walks or we bump into other people. Sometimes include others in your walks and so many amazing exchanges happen.
- Vitamin benefits
When the sun in out you get vitamin D.
Creative ideas come when you are quiet. It helps with creativity.
Have fun and enjoy the journey!
