Nature, your best friend for your overall well-being

© Trex

At a time when technology reigns supreme and many people find it difficult to spend even a single hour without the often-unnecessary stimulation of their “smart” phone, we must find concrete ways to regain control of our well-being, to calm down and to tame the silence.

There are many ways to clear our minds, calm our emotions, and find the inner peace essential to our overall health. And yes, some require access to technology via applications (apps), others require a greater willingness to integrate one of these paths to inner peace into our daily lives, especially if one is the type of person who is easily overwhelmed.

So, in order to eliminate all the excuses you might have for not integrating into your life this ingredient so essential to your health and vitality, here is a very simple way to access this element, one which is available to everyone in our beautiful region: spending time in nature alone!

Here are some of the many benefits of spending time in nature alone (which also means without technology).

  • Improves short-term memory
  • Optimizes the management of emotions
  • Helps reduce inflammation
  • Stabilizes energy levels
  • Regulates blood pressure
  • Improves the ability to concentrate
  • Optimizes creativity
  • Contributes to a better immune system
  • Improves the quality of sleep And the good news is that a simple 15–20-minute walk in nature is enough to obtain and enjoy these benefits.

The next time you are in nature, take the time to breathe deeply and pay attention to the sounds (or silence) and all the energy that Mother Nature gives us so abundantly.

To your Health! Jessica et Bruno
