For the past 50 years, there has been a steep population increase in cities across the United States. Along with this urban shift has been an increase in mental health conditions. Worry and depression are higher and more common. Add to this the recent COVID-19 pandemic that has affected each of us in one way or another. Mental fatigue and mood disorders have also gone up. This is why it is more important than ever to focus on holistic health. One way to ease your mind is to spend time outdoors. Recent research has found that being in nature has a positive effect on mood. For example, a hike beside a fresh mountain stream can do wonders to relieve stress. In addition, it can help to increase brain function – including memory.
