Living in the city can come with many perks like being able to meet new people, try new activities, and attend big events. But for some, the city can become a bit overwhelming. You can thank the loud noise, high cost of living, and, depending on where you may live, the lack of space for that.
If you are one of those who are seeking a way to catch a break from the chaos, go find a forest near you and spark up a conversation with a tree.
Before you get all judgmental on me, allow me to share how talking to a tree can help you.
Improve Your Health
I know you may think the idea of talking to a tree is crazy but they contain essential wood oils that increase the number of killer cells in the body. These cells have been known to fight sickness and diseases. They even strengthen your senses. So go ahead, take a stroll and become one with trees. There is a reason why the Japanese made it a part of their health benefits.
The Sounds of Nature
The whisper of wind, rustle of leaves, songs of a bird, and the sound of streams can be like music to a stressed person's ears. It has the ability to drown out the noise of brain activity and can significantly reduce blood pressure.
A Sight For Sore Eyes
We all know how beautiful nature can be. But not only is it a good looker, it has also been proven to decrease heart rate, blood pressure, and increase feelings of calmness and joy.
I know that laughter is said to be the best medicine. But nature should be considered as well.
They Are The Best Counselors
Trees have a gift that most humans don't and that is the ability to listen. It has gotten even worse now that we live in a digital world. So go and find yourself a tree that will give you that sense of non-judgment, mental clarity, and emotional cleansing that your body is craving. When you consider all that it has been through in the city, doesn't your body deserve that much?
