Why meditate indoors, when you can get more benefits doing it outdoors?? The use of nature and outdoor space in meditation has been proven to yield major health benefits.
According to a Harvard study, outdoor meditation can reduce hypertension and lower blood pressure, temporarily. While more studies are required on its long-term effect, meditating in the serenity of nature can undoubtedly reduce stress and promote a sense of natural healing.
Over 600 research studies conducted on meditation agree that it has the power to improve mental health, from depression to schizophrenia, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). By practicing this healing art outdoors – as nature fully nourishes our senses with its sight, sounds and smells, making us feel more intrinsically connected to the world – you can experience a tremendous boost to your mental health.
