So here at Parker Naturals, we have put together a list of some amazing health benefits getting in touch with nature can have on your mind, body and spirit.
1. Nature Could Reduce Your Risk of Alzheimer’s
Gardening, in particular, has been shown to help keep your mind sharp. There is just something about getting your hands in the earth that feels very therapeutic. And, a study by the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease found that various physical activities, including gardening, can cut your risk of Alzheimer’s by 50%. (1) Other studies have found that horticulture therapy has been very engaging for patients with dementia and has a positive effect on their overall wellbeing.

This process not only helps us feel connected to the earth but also creates a positive charge in the mind and body. This connection to the earth can feel relaxing and uplifting at the same time.
3. Nature Has Been Shown to Boost Your Mental Health

Some studies have shown that spending just five minutes a day outside in nature can have a positive, lasting effect on a person’s health. One study also found a significant link between being in nature and lower rates of anxiety and depression. (2)
