How is staying surrounded by nature great for your health?

When you think of buying or investing in real estate, what is the first thing that comes to mind? Proximity to essentials like hospitals, schools, and workplace/educational institutions and a property that is thriving with top-notch amenities, and a world-class clubhouse. Isn’t it? But are these factors good for a healthy lifestyle or your overall well being? Well, obviously having modern conveniences is needed. But what is missing in the mix is ample greenery. But it’s the one thing you should be looking at!

According to various studies and even out personal experience as well, all of us know and understand that nature has a positive effect on the well-being of humans. If you are looking to buy/invest in plots, then you should choose the one that offers you vast green spaces as well. 

Here’s why you should be putting greenery on the top of your ‘Amenities wishlist’ 

  1. Reduces Stress Levels: Have you noticed, every time you feel stressed or overwhelmed with everything happening around you, all you want to do is pack your bags to a hill station or beach destination! That’s because nature helps reduce stress and other negative emotions like anger, fear and anxiety. You would have noticed how you feel de-stressed when you go for a walk in a green space, compared to that on a street. Green Spaces reduces the production of cortisol, the stress hormone and helps you feel calm and relaxed. Staying surrounded by nature also offers you a sense of privacy and peace required to de-stress. 
  2. Helps You Unwind: After a long hectic day, all you want to do is to unwind from the day’s work. While catching up on your favourite Netflix series or talking to a friend on the phone might feel good but they still don’t contribute to your overall health. Spending hours with electronic devices can increase your heart rate. That’s why it is best advised to take some time off electronic devices. Instead, step out for a brisk walk or just sit with a nice cup of coffee facing a beautiful landscape. Spending time outdoors in nature will surely give you a calming effect. This calming effect, not just helps calm you down mentally but physically as well. The body feels way more relaxed spending time amidst nature than doing anything else.
  3. Improves Your Physical Health: Just like emotional well-being, physical health is important. Exercise is crucial for your well being. Whether it is a 15-minute walk in the park, a jog around the premise or a yoga session, it will leave you feeling great. The best thing about having access to green spaces is that you feel motivated to step out to workout. There is nothing better than combining the best things — exercise and outdoor space. For those who didn’t know, green spaces and exercise increase the production of endorphins, the feel-good hormones. With an increased level of endorphins, you will feel calm and energetic throughout the day. 
  4. Increases Productivity and Creativity: Daily you are exposed to a ton of ideas, and after working for a long period, you need to step away from what you are doing. To keep your creativity and productivity intact, you need to take some time off. Merusri’s plotted development has vast green spaces that relieve you from mental fatigue. The green spaces provide you with endless opportunities from where you can draw inspiration. Your productivity levels also increase. This is because spending as little as 25 minutes a day close to nature can give your brain rest and increase cognitive functioning.
