We have become so zipped-up, buttoned-down, cleanly scrubbed and neatly combed climate-controlled comfort seekers we have lost the raw passion of being wildly alive. It is time to wake up to the wonder and beauty of your life and start living by exploring the wild places around you.
Three great reasons to start REWILDING!
Reason One: Richard Louv, author of Last Child in the Woods and Nature Principle writes, "Time spent in nature is the most cost effective and powerful way to counteract the burnout and sort of depression that we feel when we sit in front of a computer all day… Now, more than ever, we need nature as a balancing agent."
Reason 2: Wim Hof, the Iceman himself, who inspired investigative journalist Scott Carney to write Doesn’t Kill
Us: How Freezing Water, Extreme Altitude, and Environmental Conditioning Will Renew Our Lost Evolutionary Strength explains, "When we interact with nature miraculous things can happen."
Reason 3: Wallace J Nichols, author of Blue Mind, argues that "Neuroscientists and psychologists add that the ocean and wild waterways are a wellspring of happiness and relaxation, sociality and romance, peace and freedom, play and creativity, learning and memory, innovation and insight, relation and nostalgia, confidence and solitude, wonder and awe, empathy and compassion, reverence and beauty—and help manage trauma, anxiety, sleep, autism, fitness, attention/focus, stress, grief, PTSD, build personal resilience, and much more."
We, at SokyaHealth, challenge you to experiment with the multitude of options you have for connecting with nature until you find a strategy and a routine that works perfectly for you. Once you’ve found it, spend at least one hour out in nature each and every week for the next year and see how your body and mind respond. More and more research studies indicate that many of our emotional and physical ailments are because we live in concrete jungles and climate-controlled caves separated from our natural environment. You were not born to sleepwalk through life. You were born to be wild!
Look up. Wake up. REWILD!
