Preventing disease with nature
Updated: Aug 3
According to a study conducted by Aarhus University, children who grow up with little to no access to nature are 55% more likely to have mental health disorders as they grow into adulthood (Bando, 2019).
I'm sure that many of you have been becoming more aware of the healing benefits of being in nature. Strolling through a park, taking a hike, or even sitting in your yard can create feelings of calm, peace, and happiness.
Plants reduce stress! As humans, we crave and need nature to provide a healing space to escape from the toxicity of society. Living in a society marked by poor self-care habits, constantly shifting attention, and a high level of technological interaction takes a toll on our health.
Not everyone is able to find green spaces close to where they live or work. For those of us who are fortunate enough to have our own outdoor spaces, it is absolutely essential that we treat them with love and care, crafting a healthy space for all organisms who live there. Creating a healthy space for others is actually the best thing for you, too!
Have you been contemplating transforming your space into a tranquil getaway? Let us know how we can help.
