Spending time in nature helps to reduce stress and anxiety.

Whatever you call it, forest bathing, eco-therapy, mindfulness in nature, green time or the wilderness cure, humans evolved in the great outdoors, and your brain benefits from a journey back to nature.

Here are 8 compelling reasons to spend time outside, away from screens and beeping, buzzing devices:

  1. Get happy – Hanging out in nature, especially when combined with exercise, may help ease feelings of anxiety, depression and negativity.
  2. Relieve stress – Lower cortisol levels (the body’s stress hormone) translates to better mood and overall health.
  3. Reduce inflammation & improve immune function – Research suggests that people who spend time in nature may have lower levels of inflammation than those who don’t.
  4. Improve sleep & daytime energy – Getting your bootie outside can be physically and mentally rejuvenating.
  5. Support heart health – Getting outdoors often translates to increased exercise, which helps reduce blood pressure and heart rate.
  6. Boost brain function – Research suggests that walking in nature has an added beneficial effect on memory and the ability to focus.
  7. Increase vitamin D – Vitamin D plays an important role in immune system functioning and mood, and also impacts weight, appetite and metabolism.
  8. Breathe easier – If you’re luck enough to live near open, green spaces or in a more rural environment, you’re more likely to get outside for a walk, hike, bike ride or some gardening.
