The Four Benefits Of Living Close To Nature

April 15, 2021

There is so much value to be had by spending more time in nature. Both from a physiological and psychological standpoint. It helps keep us from getting mental health issues and also is great for our body.

The problem is that modern life makes it difficult to get out in nature often enough to make much of a difference. We are too busy and often live far from wild natural areas. As suburbs grow, nature shrinks. 

This is why so many people are opting for moving to a community built close to nature so they can take advantage of having it close by. These new developments are built by working hand in hand with nature. Land for sale Wyndham Vale is a good example of this. You get access to the conveniences of a city whole enjoying being close to nature. 

In this article, I will go over what some of those benefits are when you move to a development that is close to nature:

1 – Better Air And Water Quality

Air quality is so poor as you get close to a city that it can have a serious impact on your health. There are millions of avoidable deaths every year, because of air pollution because these people live in or close to a city.

When you get out near the country you will notice a difference in the quality of the air right away. Besides the fact there are not as many sources of pollution, there is an air scrubber in nature. Trees absorb a lot of dangerous particles in the air and leave it much cleaner. And, they are a source of oxygen which makes the air much cleaner in that regard as well.

2 – Lower Stress Levels

It is no secret that when you are having a bad day or things are starting to build up and you feel the mental toll, that nature is the best cure. When you get out in the forest or hiking in the mountains, you are able to clear your mind like no yoga session is able to do. 

So, naturally, when you live near nature, you have access to this remedy and can take advantage much more often. This inevitably leads to much less stress in your life.

3 – You Learn New Things 

One of the best ways to keep your mind sharp and fend off Alzheimer’s or dementia is to always be learning. And when you live in a natural setting, you are in an atmosphere of constant learning. You will learn about the weather as you watch it change and understand those changes. You will learn about animals and their behavior. And, in the end, you will learn more about yourself.

Nature is the best classroom and there are lessons lurking under every stone and in every breeze. 

4 – You Have More Time

The pace of life in a natural area moves much more slowly than when you live in the city. This allows you to spend more time doing things that you enjoy rather than always going through the motions.
