Our modern lives are filled with an unprecedented amount of noise and static. The rabbit hole of deception that can be social media further complicates matters. It feels as if there’s no way to escape.
But, as often is the case with complex problems, simplifying our outlook provides a solution.
Discard the entanglements of modern life and replenish in the calm of the outdoors. Science backs up this most basic of notions. Whether it’s a national park or a bit of green space in an urban grid, finding some form of nature benefits our minds and souls.
The serenity of trees, grass, and rolling hills and mountains reduces our blood pressure and can diminish the hormones related to stress and anxiety. The rhythmic calm of the river or wind in the trees produces a light form of hypnosis, inducing relaxation and tranquility. These natural benefits are amplified when given the previously mentioned benefit of social connection.
Nature uses its canvas to masterfully plot out images and scenes our CGI masters can’t replicate in ways which are breath taking. Renowned author, Alice Walker perfectly sums up the mystifying power of the outdoors.
Here at Hänga, we value everything about nature and want to share that love with you all. In our continued mission to further connections and moments of purpose, we also hope nature can offer everyone some balance and restoration. Hänga is a place for everyone, but we will especially make room for all the hängs involving the great outdoors.
Make sure to check out our upcoming hängs for opportunities to rekindle your connection with others and nature.
