Benefits of Being in Nature
Being in Mother Nature is soothing to the soul and an uplifting experience. Take a break from technology and take a hike to promote overall wellness. Slow down your brain and allow the Earth’s natural beauty to calm your inner being. Just sitting outside for 20 minutes a day is beneficial to your wellbeing. This must be why our campers are always so chipper!
Exposure to the many sounds of nature and smells of nature can restore balance within. Do you love the sounds of birds singing or frogs and crickets at night? How about the smell of wildflowers or fresh running spring water? All of these elements have beneficial effects on overall wellbeing.
