Spending time in the great outdoors can help you reduce stress, lower your blood pressure, and be more mindful. Studies have even shown that getting outside can help reduce fatigue, making it a great way to overcome symptoms of depression or burnout. Getting outside can also help you sleep better at night, especially if you do some physical activity, like hiking or walking, while you are outside.
As a person with a chronic illness that affect my ability to stand or walk, I realize how difficult doing physical activity can be. Spending time in the great outdoors is still important. There is something healing about nature that you won’t find inside your home no matter how good you are at self-care.

While being in the great outdoors, we sometime cross garbage on the ground. Why not pick them up? The more of us who start picking up garbage on the ground, the more it will inspire others to do the same. After all, we are all concerned and able to make a difference. If each of us picked up at least one waste, the impact would be huge.
