Let’s see what nature can do for you, and those who matter to you. Countries around the world are uncovering scientific proof about the healing effects of connecting with nature. Japan and South Korea have even created the charming practice of forest bathing and healing nature walks. With our overloaded minds and overworked bodies, returning to nature can yield surprising results. Here’s our 5 minute film that explains how.
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.
“Our aim is simple. Helping people heal. Helping forests heal.”
So how do we transform our connection with nature in a way that transforms us? How can we start sowing the seeds of peace, kindness, and health in the world around us?
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.
