Why You Should Go Outside (right after you read this)

Why You Should Go Outside (right after you read this) | HEALTH and WELLNESS | Scoop.it

"Turns out, there’s proof communing with nature makes you healthier and happier"

 

 Renowned yogi Eoin Finn says the positive energy you feel among ocean waves or towering Redwoods can lead to greater Zen and health. And research agrees.

 

Finn says that the “vibrational transcendent energy” that yogis try to tap on the mat is often the same feeling you get when immersed in nature, when a brilliant, beautiful environment makes you suddenly feel super thankful and…small. “Yoga is the systematic reduction of ego. When our egos diminish, we open up to a greater consciousness. That consciousness is a connection I feel when I’m out in nature—and that’s the basis of health and spirituality.”

Around 4,800 people took part in this year's online Flu Survey, run by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.

 

Moderate exercise did not appear to have a protective effect, the researchers said.

I have heard too much exercise can lower yr immune system

Barlay Industries, Andrew Barlay's curator insight, March 18, 2014 9:13 AM

Regular exercise may not prove to prevent common sickness, but the feeling of accomplishment and wellbeing brings a state of mind that helps push through a potential sickness ultimately reducing recovery time.
