HOW CONNECTING WITH NATURE AND WILDLIFE BENEFIT YOU

>As technology and society develops, it is plain to see that many have lost interest in the world around them. Instead of marveling at the beauty of nature, they marvel at pictures of it on their smartphones.

 

According to Time Magazine, people who own smartphones are more stressed out than those who don’t. The 24/7 access to the internet has caused an addiction, with one out of five adults admitting that they constantly check their phones.

 

While there are tons of ways to relieve this stress, there is one way that will be sure to send you home relaxed and ready for the days and weeks to come. Here are a few ways connecting with nature and wildlife can benefit you:

PHYSICAL HEALTH

There are several health impacts spending some time in nature can provide. One main benefit is that spending time in nature can boost your immune system. Not only does this happen because you are breathing fresh hair, but also because you’re absorbing vitamin D from the sun. Fresh air allows your body to absorb phytoncides, which have antibacterial properties, and vitamin D may have protective properties against several health issues. There is nothing quite like the feeling of being in the bush and going back to our roots, it gives you a feeling of exhilaration , freedom and gives you time to take a step back from the stresses of everyday life. There is something so simple about the way animals live and it really makes you appreciate how much ‘clutter’ we have in our lives and how much of it we can do without.

MENTAL HEALTH

Taking a trip into nature away from your work desk has been proven to have a positive effect on mental health and concentration. According to a Harvard Business Review article, a study found that 94 percent of those who went on vacation had much more energy upon their return.

 

In addition to surrounding yourself with nature, animals have been a proven way to regulate mental health. If you are safely able to see or interact with animals, your body releases hormones that make you feel good.

 

SPIRITUAL HEALTH

It doesn’t matter how worship, spending time in the calm and serenity of nature will help you connect deeper with yourself and your beliefs. Spending time in the quiet is just what many people need. The calmness associated with nature will allow your thoughts to come forward without the distraction of cell phones, work, or school.
