How Spending More Time Outdoors Reduces Stress

You can’t put a price on happiness, and if you need a little more light in your life, just take a step outdoors! Nature has so much to offer to put a smile and your face and energize you. If you’re looking to reduce your stress and need to take a break from the struggles of everyday life, enjoying some time outside, even for a short while, can make a big difference.

Here’s how some time outdoors does the body and soul good: 

Lowers Your Blood Pressure

Spending some time walking outdoors and taking in some fresh air and the beautiful scenery can help lower your blood pressure by reducing your stress-related hormones in your body, including cortisol and adrenaline.

Helps Heal Quicker

Suffering from any illness or having a serious operation done can be painful and frightening. The recovery process can also be overwhelming and take an uncomfortably long time. When you’re stressed, your body will heal slower, so spending some time outdoors can help you relax and focus on your recovery. In fact, various studies have shown that those who spent time outside after surgery or working through an ailment need painkillers less frequently, spent less time in the hospital, and experienced fewer complications in their recovery than those who stayed indoors.

Improved Mood

Nature simply makes us happier! The sweet sounds of nature, beautiful scenery, sunlight, and fresh air all help the body relax, reduce anxiety, reduce depression, and reduce anger to help out a smile on your face.

Better Focus

Studies show that children and adults who struggle to control their impulses can concentrate better after enjoying some time in nature. Exploring the outdoors allows our minds to separate from all the things indoors that mentally drain us so that we can re-energize and clear our heads.
