“Our aim is simple. Helping people heal. Helping forests heal.”
For thousands of years our ancestors hunted, gathered, and survived in the wilderness. Endless grasslands, dense forests and vast stretches of green were an integral part of a place we called home.
But in today’s world, the green spaces are replaced by urban structures, crowded places and polluted environments. This rapid change puts an unwanted pressure on our body and mind. As a result we have seen that chronic illnesses, stress, depression, anxiety, burnout and other ailments are on the rise. Also as a society, there is an increase in apathy, anger, addictions, intolerance, and loneliness.
So how do we regrow our connection with nature? How can we start the process of creating a kinder, calmer, and a healthier world?
Calm for your mind, body, life
As humans, we have evolved in nature. It’s what makes us feel complete. Multiple research on the healing powers of nature have shown a variety of benefits for our physical, mental, and social health. It provides an easy and effective way for avoiding stress, anxiety, burnout, depression, as well as reducing their ill-effects. Connecting with nature boosts our body’s immunity, energy levels, and healing ability. It can improve our mood, sleep, memory as well as focus. Nature also has a soothing influence on our relationships and emotional well-being.
