It's during these times that I feel a yearning to dive into the wild and go exploring. When I see a copse of trees along the margins, I am drawn to it. I long to leave behind the concrete and the glass and dive into the chaos of nature. I want to ramble through the brambles and bracken. I want to hide from society and find solace in solitude.
The truth is that researchers have studied the effects of nature on the human body, and here's what they have found--
Being in nature...
- decreases stress levels.
- boosts your immune system.
- improves your mood.
- improves the ability to focus.
- increases your energy level.
- and on and on and on.
Though we live in an artificial environment, we are creatures of nature. We were built by nature. Even the Bible says that God made Adam from clay. Our origin is the soil itself. We need nature much more than nature needs us. So please make room in your life for nature. Love the trees, love the soil, love nature, love the wild.
