Nature has been shown to have a fascinating effect on humans. Green landscapes and large water surfaces (seas, oceans and lakes) are particularly relaxing and beneficial.
Positive feelings and positive side effects
Scientists have been studying how nature affects our psyche for decades.
Pioneers in the field include researchers from the United States. Originally, they wanted to find out how paths and accommodation in American national parks have to be created so that visitors feel comfortable and come back as many times as possible. The research area was later expanded. The result was always the same: nature is good for us.
Nature affects the body like a medicine
This effect can be read from the fact that high blood pressure and heart rate decrease, as does the cortisol level in the blood (cortisol is a stress hormone). It has also been proven that our heart rhythm reacts more flexibly to stress. All of these are indicators of relaxation.
A stay in nature - even if it is only for a few minutes can be enough to feel its benefits - it greatly improves our concentration and our mood. Time spent in nature make us more social, tolerant and increases tolerance to frustration. Time spent in nature is time invested in your mental health.
You should also keep in mind that if you are going through any difficult, stressful or depressive life period, nature can greatly help you feel better. It is an instant helper without any negative side effects. Spend as much time as possible in natural surroundings with natural sunlight (forests or near great water surfaces and see how your mood improves almost instantly).
