Why Take Walks in the Park?

Breast Cancer Car Donations has gathered these four benefits of spending time in nature:
- The scent of trees can help reduce stress.
A person’s sense of smell is said to be closely related to the emotional center of our brain. This is the reason why when we smell certain scents, we are immediately reminded of a good memory from the past, which evokes nostalgic emotions. When you remember these things, your mind becomes relaxed and the stressful cortisol levels in your body dramatically decrease.
- It’s good for the heart.
Green spaces are also known to have positive effects on the body. Studies show that people who spend more time in parks or forests are less likely to experience spikes in blood pressure. Japanese researchers have also linked spending time in parks to lowered cortisol levels in the body, which helps boost a person’s mood.
- You feel motivated to exercise.
A walk in the park activates different senses as well. Being outdoors helps you appreciate nature more, and the more you get used to the feeling of being outside, the more motivated you’ll be to go out and exercise. Scientific evidence proves that people who spend more time doing physical activities outdoors are more likely to succeed in making it a long-term routine.
- It helps stimulate your brain cells.
Taking a walk through the green scenery of a park is known to improve memory retention and learning. Research has shown that children who are exposed to forest environments at school have better cognitive skills and manual dexterity than children who are in enclosed spaces. Likewise, in adults, taking a walk in the park can stimulate the brain cells, which leads to better brain function.
