John Muir once said, “Keep close to nature’s heart...and break clear away once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.” There is documentation that's nature improves your life, your well-being. The closer to nature you are, the more strongly these benefits can be felt.
There have been multiple studies that have shown the benefits that your body feels by simply being in nature. Even if you're just sitting among the trees, in the stillness of your environment, your stress stress-related hormones (cortisol and adrenaline) and blood pressure are being reduced. These physical benefits can be amplified when you are with those you love or doing some form of physical activity (gardening, yoga, etc.), which have also been shown to increase one’s well-being.
