What the Great Outdoors has to Offer for You

by Jessica Zhang

These days, we find ourselves spending hours staring at our computers and minutes standing outside. Let me tell you why we should flop things around, or at least make a compromise. Nature is like a magic potion that holds the antidote to most, if not all, of your stresses. Spending time outdoors has been shown to have a number of health benefits, including the following: 

  • Increase in Happiness
  • Improvement in Health
  • Greater Self-esteem 
  • Relief from mental tensions
  • Mood Boosts
  • Restored attention
  • Exercise in Mindfulness

All of these benefits have been suggested by numerous studies and are worthy reasons for you to give nature a shot! Here are some ideas on how to:

Take a morning walk

Spending a few moments to get your blood pumping around the neighborhood sounds much more attractive than staring at your phone in bed. Get outside and into the sunshine!

Whenever you’re looking for a break, go outside

We can’t spend forever studying and working, so why not spend a few moments listening to music in your backyard to rewire your mind?

Move your office to your backyard

I understand we can all be busy, so this is where our compromise kicks in. Our offices can be so drab, and let’s face it, they’re nothing compared to your backyard garden. 

Take vacations in nature, go camping

Big cities are nice and all, but try taking a week long break with a serene camping experience. Chances are, you won’t regret it!

Exercise outside

Part of staying healthy includes exercise as well, so why not combine two well-being superpowers?

Most likely, you were cramped up indoors while reading this article. So, what are you waiting for? 🙂
