Constantly stressed, cheerless or feeling worthless? Then you are for sure a victim of the new trend, the ultra-technologized lifestyle. In the last few years, electronics have surreptitiously taken over people’s lives, completely eliminating the strong link between us and nature. Let’s have look why this connection is so essential.
Over the years, nature has served a crucial role for humans, food and shelter being only the main benefits. You may think that now we need nature’s help less than we did in the past, but that’s a completely wrong assumption. Nowadays, the most visible impact it has on us is lined to our mood. Taking a slow walk in a park or through a forest will not only reduce your stress, but also give you a new lease of life. Another advantage the environment has is improving human communication. Researches have shown that people are more likely to strike up a conversation when in a park, than when they are surrounded by electronics. Thus, nature helps us reduce, or even defeat, the feeling of loneliness. What is more, whenever you have an important test or exam, you can always count on a forest for being the place where your productivity will be at its maximum level.
All things considered, no matter how hard we try making our lives easier by inventing and using all sorts of machines, nature will be forever the best choice. So turn your back on grey lifeless displays and embrace the green world. Author: Alexandra Pașca
