The Healing Power of Nature: Spending Time Outdoors Is Vital During Stressful Periods

The environment overwrites habits on the long term. I experienced it first hand since I moved to Munich this summer. I swapped the buzzing Berlin life to hikes in the Alps, bold swims in the crystal clear lakes (or at least I'm accommodating myself to it!) and weekends spent in nature. Moving to Bavaria and living in the vicinity of the mountains is a lifestyle change, and outdoor activities become a lot more part of my daily life.

Nature can generate many positive emotions, such as calmness, joy, and creativity and can facilitate concentration.

“A walk in nature, walks the soul back home." - Mary Davis

A relocation comes with stress, uncertainty, constant changes and daily challenges to cope with. Connecting with nature has a proven positive impact on mental health, it can reduce stress, calm down the nervous system, and help you recharge your mental and emotional batteries.

When you're going through a busy period of your life, allowing yourself to take longer breaks, even taking a day off for yourself can sound ridiculous. Yet, it contributes you being there on the long term, being able to face adversity and filling your cup before pouring your energy into one of the millions of things that are waiting on your to-do list.

What are some ways that help you recharge? 🌳
