The Walks That Relax
Many clinical studies show that simple walks in the woods produce lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol; lower heart rates and blood pressure; and, lower nervous brain activity.
In Japan, they think of walking in the woods as preventive medicine. They actually have dozens of official Forest Therapy Trails there – and 25% of the population uses them.
In Japan, they call these nature walks “forest bathing”. Taking a relaxing bath in nature, water not included. These nature baths give the planning and problem-solving parts of your brain a rest. So you feel refreshed.
We now know that even looking at nature images in a lab reduces stress and makes you feel happier. Looking at pictures – or video – actually turns off your otherwise non-stop data processing, your e-mail checking, your looking for a parking space – all that stuff that causes mental fatigue. So a 30-minute Treadmill Trail video version of nature should leave you feeling very relaxed, refreshed and sharp.
And a little lighter if you stand up and move your feet while you’re watching.
