3 Ways To Connect With Nature & Elevate Your Mental Health

We spend so much time rushing around, glued to our screens, and eating meals on-the-go, but what’s the point of living in a perpetual state of stress when you have this one life to live?

You deserve to enjoy your life and to feel excited to wake up everyday!

If this is not your current reality, then wouldn’t you agree that something has to change?

This doesn’t mean selling your home, and moving to the desert to live in a tiny home…

Sometimes all it takes is time spent in nature to realign with your true self and get a glimpse into the true meaning of life.

In this article we’ll show you a few ways you can start to embrace the outdoors in more way than one- to boost your health, your mood, and transform your life!


Skip the gym and take your workout outdoors

Even if you live in a busy city, try to find a park close by where you can take some time to relax everyday, or even better, do your workout there!

Exercise is a great way to improve your overall mental and physical health, yet it can get a little depressing working out indoors at the gym day in and day out.

Put on your running shoes and hit the pavement where you can enjoy some fresh air, nice views and new scenery so you never get bored.

Bring nature indoors

Trees and plants have wonderful therapeutic properties, helping to relieve stress and anxiety, but did you know they may even improve your immune function?

Plants emit airborne chemicals called phytoncides that protect them against rotting and from insects, and these same chemicals seem to have a beneficial impact on humans too. To really immerse yourself in the benefits, you may want to consider forest bathing.

 Forest Bathing is both an ancient and modern way to fully absorb the healing & rejuvenating effects of nature.
