Time in Nature

  • Post category:Mindfulness

Spending time in nature, or even viewing scenes of nature, decreases anger, fear, stress, anxiety and increases positive, pleasant feelings. Experiencing nature makes you feel better emotionally, contributes to your physical wellbeing, and reduces blood pressure, heart rate, muscle tension, and the production of stress hormones. Perhaps we should tend our gardens, take a walk in the park, sit among flowers…or even look at beautiful nature photos at least 3 times a week. I have a wood carving of Beech Trees (wonderful gift from Leo Trujillo) and a Wood Inlay of water and boats from Italy. They sure help.
