City life does not give much time for recreation except in the form of television or magazines. However, a walk in nature offers complete relaxation. Once you remove some time to take a walk in natural surroundings, you will feel the benefits it offers to your mind and body.
Pure beauty and joy
We are so accustomed to the regular sights of buildings, bridges and vehicles that a sight of natural beauty has a stunning effect on us. The sheer beauty of a sunrise or sunset while taking a walk on the beach makes us feel good about life and leaves us with a sense of peace and well-being.
The smell of flowers and grass and their colorful hues also have a similar effect. Most people may be accustomed to car fumes and the polluted surroundings that are a common sight in the city. The change of scenery offered by walking in the company of flowers and trees will remind us of the abundance of life in Mother Nature. It has the power to fill our mind with positive energy.
Most illnesses today are caused by the stress and anxiety that comes with tensions of everyday life. Walking in natural surrounding like a garden or beach will relieve us of this stress. Nature has a calming effect on the mind.
One can take walks while beholding the natural surroundings — trees, flowers, green grass, and blue sky, sunrise or sunset. This will help your body to unwind and help you look at things from a different perspective. Nature walks give us the time to think about our lives, to take a break and reflect. This has a positive effect on mental and physical health.
Breathe in, breathe out
Take in the fresh air as you walk and revel in the natural beauty. Research has shown that direct contact with nature relieves mental fatigue.
It is said that health is wealth. So take some time and get back to nature with a walk in the wild.
