Nature is a source of knowledge and beauty, something important for human beings. But its benefits are not only there. In addition, it offers a number of benefits for your own health, both physical and mental.
A healthy mind needs a healthy body in which to live. What better than clean air, natural foods and raw materials that offer us to improve the physical state and therefore, the mental?
The researchers Steven and Rachel Kaplan talk about the “restorative experience” to refer to the mental balance and reduction of mental fatigue and stress caused by the simple fact of doing five minutes of physical exercise in full natural. This activity directly affects the state of mind and the increase in self-esteem.
Connect with nature:
Connecting with nature means setting aside the belief that we are so important, almost divine, and accounting for once and for all that we are human, belonging, like animals, to this world that we do not understand but that has an established natural order and that is what it is, like it or not.
Nature is wise and has endowed us with certain mechanisms, instincts and impulses destined to survive and be happier. After all, this is the ultimate goal of all human beings and everything, absolutely everything we carry out aims to achieve satisfaction with life and survival. We work to survive, but we also seek the happiness of some way through work, we are paired so that the human species and more specifically, our genes, are perpetuated and also so that life is more pleasant in the company of a special person who can offer us much and vice versa. In short, everything we do, all our vital projects seek to find the desired happiness and make it easier to stay in this world.
