The power of a forest walk

Forest walk

Nature can help us in many different ways. For example, by clearing your mind and reducing stress and anxiety.

A 15-minute walk through a peaceful green area, such as a forest or park, does wonders for the body and the soul. By focusing your attention on your surroundings while walking, you can take a break from the things that are on your mind.

For example, pay attention to the color of the flowers and leaves of the trees, or look specifically for different birds. And if you don’t have a forest or park nearby, a wander along some water, such as a river or canal, is very effective too.
