The Benefits of Nature in Recovery
Nature can be a powerful ally in your healing process. It soothes feelings of mental anguish and spiritual alienation while restoring your physical health and overall well-being. Taos is famous for its clean, clear skies and year-round sunshine; when you spend time walking through the grounds of Vista Taos, you’re bathed in fresh air and warm sunlight. You’ll reap the benefits of vitamin D and serotonin boosts as a result of your time outdoors.
Research has shown that spending time in nature improves your mental health. Drugs and alcohol cause you to disconnect from the people and things around you; going outside reconnects you to your senses. You’ll experience feelings of unity with nature, humanity, and a Higher Power that can guide you through any obstacles in recovery. Connecting with nature provides quiet time to reflect on your feelings and events, and it also reawakens your sense of gratitude for the life you have.
