When was the last time you spent time in nature? Not just the last time you went outside, but the last time you really took time to walk through a park, explore a forest, hike in the mountains, or visit a lake? Think back to some of these experiences you’ve had, and consider how they made you feel. ​​​​​​​​
Spending time in nature is shown to improve mental health, reduce stress, boost your immune system, and contribute to overall wellbeing. Being in nature can help you disconnect from technology and reconnect with the rest of your life. The silence can help quiet your mind and help you focus. Paying attention to the natural world can help you appreciate the simple things in life. ​​​​​​​​
Next time you feel stressed, anxious, overwhelmed, angry, confused, or in need of some direction, try exploring nature. Don’t just go for a walk around the block, get to a park, forest, mountains, lake, etc. to appreciate the world around you. Chances are if you’re in Edmonton, you’ve got some great green space near you, so why not explore it and get in some self-care?​​​​​​​​
