Feel the wind in your hair.
Jump in puddles.
The rain is continuing here, albeit sporadically. It hasn’t stopped me, and I must admit I think going outside more has helped to moderate my usual weather headaches.
This week I’ve been experimenting with the how going outside can impact my health. To see how this experiment has been progressing, check out yesterday in the health benefits of nature.
Conclusions on the health benefits of nature
Well, my initial research on the subject suggested that there were some substantial benefits to going out and getting in touch with nature. I dispute none of these benefits, I just wanted to see if I could experience these results in a period of only a week.
The answer? Yes.
In my original statement on the health benefits of nature I talked about the benefits that studies say nature offers.
- Nature can make you feel better.
- Nature reduces stress.
- Nature helps make us more creative.
- Nature improves our memory.
- And, Nature makes us better people.
I don’t feel more moral, nor do I feel like a better person, but I certainly feel better and less stressed. Perhaps the other benefits come with longer terms of exposure.
All things considered, it was a week of time well spent. Even better, this activity easily combines with other previous experiments for a greater potential result!
