Energy

Energy

Is your energy level causing you problems?
Nature has many positive effects on our energy, mood, relaxation and sleep.
Are you going for a walk outside today? A trip to the park, forest or beach can have a positive impact on your energy and wellbeing.

Remember to get the right fuel for your engine. Your body needs a healthy diet and exercise.
According to an English study from 2019, two hours in nature per week is enough for nature to have a positive impact on wellbeing. Therefore us at Howdy simply say “get going” – put on your shoes and go out into nature. It has previously been shown that nature has special powers that benefit our health and wellbeing.

For example, a study shows that trees release oils that increase our physical health and reduce stress. Another reason why nature has superpowers is perhaps that nature is often associated with physical activity – and we do benefit from that. Nature in itself also has a positive impact on us, studies show that staying in nature is related to experiencing fewer negative emotions. This suggests that we should prioritize a walk, run or swim in nature (forest, park, beach or similar) in our everyday life.

By the way – did you know that 93% of Danes report that nature and green areas have a positive influence on their mood?
Are you going out into nature today? Feel free to bring your family, because children achieve the same positive effects by being in nature!

Have a good trip!
