Nature Healing

Can contact with nature relieve stress and anxiety, and help us to heal? As for me, it appears that it can, even when I am in the loosest way. For instance, passive contact with nature, like when I look at the sunset, ocean, waterfalls, beaches and lakes.

The Blue Lagoon, Fiji

Redang Island, Terengganu

So, with all the efforts to alleviate stress; from gym and yoga to anti-stress pills, maybe the key is as simple as a garden. In fact, from my own experience even a little bit of nature seems to make a big impact.

Therefore, I would take every chance to go to nature places so that I could minimize, or at least buffer the stresses of my everyday life.
Now that's what I call nature healing.
