Listening to nature can change your physiology, your brain state, your perception and your mood. Research has shown that people that spend more time in nature live happier lives. According to Science Daily (Feb. 19, 2009 Issue), “Elderly adults tend to live longer if their homes are near a park or other green space, college students do better on cognitive tests when their dorm windows view natural settings. Children with ADHD have fewer symptoms after outdoor activities in lush environments and residents of public housing complexes report better family interactions when they live near trees.” Can being in nature help us during times of stress? The answer is yes!
When we bring our attention to nature, our biosphere, (our personal energy field) is effected. Our respiration is effected, our blood pressure is affected, our thoughts slow down and we begin to align our frequency to nature’s calming organic rhythm.
When living in times of stress, nature is truly one of our greatest friends and allies.
