I have a very important message for you, yes you, my amazing reader, I want you to step out and spend time with nature.
Today, I will talk about why spending time with nature is important and how it can be done effectively. I got the idea for this blog by watching my garden and that’s when I thought maybe I should share this with someone.
What does spending time with nature means?
The idea of spending time with nature is very broad, it starts with your balcony and could end anywhere. Going out to the walk-in park is spending time with nature, going for a swim, camping, going to the nearby forest, boating, dancing in the rain or having a nap on the grass, this all means spending time with nature.
Why this is important?
Research suggests, if you spend at least 30 mins with the nature daily you can experience these:
- Higher energy levels.
- Better mood.
- More positive feelings, better mental health.
- More productivity.
- Increase in sense of well-being
- Increased vitamin D levels
- Better sleep, as nature reduces stress.
- Better brain health and more creativity.
But wait, there’s more, research suggesting that spending time with nature helps you recover faster, reduces the risk of chronic diseases, better heart and lungs health and more. So, I don’t see any reason why you should not spend time with nature daily.
How it can be done?
No matter where you live you can find places that you can visit, it could be a park, a lake (like that in my case, as I’m from the lake city), a zoo or maybe the mountains. You can select the time of your choice and start exploring. If you don’t want to explore, then it’s fine you can just go to a local park and play games or just sit peacefully and observe. A workout in an alfresco sounds interesting or how about cycling?
I’ve mentioned gardening and that’s something you can do too, if you have some space you can start growing veggies. I am saying veggies because it takes very less time to grow (as compared to a fruit tree) and you can even eat it. If you don’t have space, you can still have some indoor plants and watch them grow. Plants can be grown at a park near you, no one will ever say no to you for growing a plant, just don’t forget to nurture it.
By the way, writing a blog in a park also seems to be an interesting idea, let me know in the comment section if you have ever done it or are willing to do it.
And if this blog didn’t inspire you to spend time with nature, maybe a beautiful poem will. I would like to share a poem by Mr. I :
The lush green meadow
The cotton like snow
The scorching heat
The strangers we meet
Nature has been that friend
Who always holds our hand
Provides us with every present
that is really very pleasant
Just step out and feel them all
May it be spring summer winter or fall
Our nature is one of its kind
Has advantages that are easy to find
Everyday the nature gives us something new
Just like grass has the cool drops of dew
Let's pledge to make good use of these advantages
I am sure you will thank the nature for ages...
Now, that you have read this blog, I want you to walk out and enjoy the beautiful nature. Feel free to share your adventures with me. Special thanks to my brother Mr. I for writing a poem on short notice and helping me with this blog.
Until next time, spend time with nature with a beautiful smile.
