Mother Nature she rocks and works. I have found that by getting people outdoors, in mother nature, grounding to the surface of the earth, syncing to the energies of the flora and fauna, especially the trees, leads to a healthier and happier person. Consequently, my workplace wellness “Mother Nature Works” workshops have been truly rocking.
Research confirms this, in July 2018, the University of East Anglia gathered evidence from 140 reports, over 20 countries involving 290 million people to see if Mother Nature really does provide a health boost. The report revealed that having exposure to nature reduced the risk of type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, premature death, preterm birth, stress, depression and high blood pressure.
Strategies are simple and straightforward. Get into nature as much as possible. Go outside, bring friends or go alone, breathe, take it all in, be present as much as possible. Ways to get started are, eating lunch outside, change your walk to work, the more greenery the environment the better. At home or when you are dinning out have dinner outside, have a picnic, when you are at a café sit outdoors, exercise outdoors, take up hiking, read a book at the beach or under a tree, join a walking group, play outside with your children or firkids, keep dancing – rocking and rolling in mother nature, she works.
