June is just days away and if you haven’t already…it’s time to get outside! The benefits of nature are finally getting the attention they deserve due to the increasing research. The best part about it? It’s FREE!
Nature Rx has put a comical spin on the topic, but the information they have compiled on the topic of nature as a prescription is fantastic. From learning research findings to picking the best campsite, I encourage you to explore ways to increase the nature in your life.
Improvements in mental health, decision making, restoring the body, and productivity are just a few of the benefits from spending time in nature. Time outside is super important for kids. Vitamin D our bodies get from the sun help them develop strong bones but the sun also gives everyone a mood boost.
Maybe organizing a trip to a National Park is not feasible at the moment, but just sitting in a green space can help reduce stress levels. Find a park near you and just start exploring what is close to home. If you are able to make a trip for time in nature, please remember to enjoy nature responsibly.
