Feeling low? Spend time in nature to improve your health
A study says that spending time outside in the natural environment helps improve a person’s overall health.
The research was done on 4,400 participants by the Oregon State University in the United States.
Researchers found that people who hike or spend time in nature have a greater life satisfaction than others.
It may be because spending more time with nature helps to improve short-term memory, reduce tension and stress, reduce the risk of eye-related problems among children, and improves focus.
Nature’s positive effect on mental health also helps to reduce risk of death from cancer, lung disease or kidney disease. This helps to maintain overall health and lead a long life.
