The present scenario of hectic schedules makes us plan vacations to the areas which are close to nature. Being close to nature is bliss. Every single living entity on earth learns and grows with the pace of nature. The pace of nature is just too perfectly woven to give us the best possible solution for any health illness.
`Nature is Healthy’ is a decade old concept and many case studies were done to show how nature acts a natural healer for some of the health illnesses. In one of the case study the relationship between outdoor recreation and depression is very well established.
The individuals above 65 yrs were studied in this case study. The individuals who participated in outdoor recreational activities for four times or more during the week have lower depression levels. This was in contrast to individuals who have higher levels of depression due to their non participation in outdoor recreational activities. So this study clearly shows how taking part in activities while being close to nature can heal your depressed mind. For more details refer to the reference of this study paper – Click Here
One question which comes out of mind is `Whether the individuals who spent less time being close to nature are depressed’? Well the hard core direct correlation is difficult to point out. But, one thing which cannot be denied is the fact that green environments can reduce stress.
Most of life threatening diseases like severe infections are made more complex by our continuous thinking thus making us more stressed. Being close to greenery for say a park in your house with flowers, trees and chirping of birds can have a magical impact on your mood.
It is because what you perceive with your senses like hearing and seeing can put your nervous system (brain and thoughts), Endocrine system (hormone channels) and immune system (hence your immunity against diseases) back to sync and harmony.
Basically when our body needs Natural Healing? It is when our body gets out of sync in balancing more incoming infections than fighting these infections efficiently or when we make more unhealthy eating choices than healthy eating choices. This out of sync scenario forces us to adopt Nature as our Healer.
