Our lives might have changed with the growing technology and the increasing lengths of the buildings around us. But our brain still greatly benefits from a journey back to nature. Studies have proven time and again that spending as little as 30 minutes in nature every day can reduce anxiety, reduce the stress hormone Cortisol, improve immunity, and improve overall physical and mental health. Various other studies also show that having greener surroundings has resulted in better mental health.
We are wired to have a deep connection with nature and nourishing that connection can bring us various benefits. But how do we do that? Spare time each day to observe the sounds, smells, shapes, colors, and textures in nature. When you do this, your brain is able to let go of the constant cacophony of thoughts that torment it.
