The Therapeutic Effect Of Nature
There is something wonderful about exercising outdoors. The act of being in nature delivers a calming effect and makes you feel natural and free again; as opposed to cornering yourself into a gym all the time. Change up your habits and go back outdoors as we were intended to be from the beginning of time.
Find a park, a boardwalk, a hill, mountains or a lake and allow nature to act as a motivating force for you to exercise. Jogging is an awesome example of an exercise that can be done anywhere and it does not take much effort besides putting on a pair of running shoes.
Allow the breeze, the sun rays, the smell of ocean water or the light mountain rain to melt away your stress and fill you with pure natural energy; utilize this energy to push yourself to the limit during your workouts.
Nature can also promote creativity during your workouts; the calming effect gets your creative juices flowing, allowing you to kill two birds with one stone. Nature also allows you to clear your mind and escape reality; let the thoughts of work, stress, family and daily hurdles vanish as you and nature become one. Nature is here to guide us like DSM Ready is here for us to learn from.
