Nature is our sweet home. It is the place that brings us all together. It never fails to amaze us in the most unpredictable way possible. Honestly, sometimes it feels very surreal when we compare it to the crowded streets and pollution we see daily. Every one of us feels different when we conquer those high mountains filled with greenery, that fill our lungs with that air of hope and affection for life.
It is proven that being in nature, or even viewing scenes of nature, reduces anger, fear, and stress and increases pleasant feelings. Exposure to nature not only makes you feel better emotionally but also contributes to your physical wellbeing. It reduces blood pressure, heart rate, muscle tension, and the production of stress hormones.
