Have you noticed that when you’re indoors for extended periods of time, it affects your mood?☁
How nature can improve your mental health
In these difficult times, it’s not easy to go out and be surrounded by other people as often anymore. Luckily, nature is still a good escape. Being in nature can benefit your mental health as it:
⚪ Reduce stress
Being indoors in front of a screen all day exposes you to unrecycled air and blue light. Natural light from nature can reduce your stress which in turn improves your immune system.
⚪ Provides Vitamin D
Natural sunlight also produces vitamin D which reduces fatigue and the effects of depressive feelings.
⚪ It’s an escape
Your mental health takes a toll when your reality feels like a constant cycle you’re trapped in. Nature is a free area that is an escape from your day-to-day routine. It provides your brain with a feeling of freedom.
A nature walk is a form of exercise, regardless of pace and duration. Exercise releases “feel-good hormones” which benefit your mood and your mental health.
If you’re feeling down or trapped in your circumstances, nature is a natural mental health stabilizer. A quick trip outside can have you feeling better in no time.
