Why does Jonah Engler consider nature therapy a popular wellness trend?

Updated on May 18, 2020

Lifestyle choices can impact the quality of life, mental clarity, wellness, mood, personal and professional opportunities. The latest scientific research reveals that the place where we reside and the food we eat can reduce or increase our stress levels. And that also impacts our entire body. The things that you see, hear, and experience has an impact on your mood. It also changes the way your immune system, endocrine, and nervous system works. If you stay in an unpleasant environment, it can make you sad, helpless, and anxious. That can, in turn, increase your heart rate and blood pressure, affect the immune system, and also lead to muscle tension. Switch your environment to a pleasant one; everything changes. Similarly, when you turn to nature, you can witness miraculous changes in your body and mind. That’s why nature therapy is becoming a popular wellness trend.
