Previously we talked about how urban life can be stressful and that you need to take a break at the beach. But on our 14th Day of 30 Days of Happiness Challenge, we want you to “unplug” and “disconnect” yourself from the urban life and connect with nature. What we mean is – let go of your smartphones and other digital devices and give yourself time to go camping outdoors. A study conducted in University of Colorado shows that camping outdoors will shift your body back to its natural sleeping cycle. Aside from that, hiking in nature will give you a chance to get good exercise. A walk in nature also decreases depressive symptoms according to Huffington Post.
If you’re convinced to start your nature time as soon as possible, then you should get these items that we’re featuring! Just click on the item description to see more.
