Have you ever noticed how much better you feel when you’re walking in the forest, along the beach or by a stream? That’s your brain responding to nature’s experience. As it turns out, nature changes us in healthy ways. Science has revealed nature’s experience calms, refreshes and resets our brains, minds and bodies in ways nothing else can – naturally and safely.
Imagine immersing yourself in a forest, on a beach or by a stream – from your living room, while meditating, doing yoga, on a flight, in your office or simply escaping your day. Life Environments Immersions™ puts nature’s lifelike experience in your pocket! For the first time you can leverage nature’s most important health and wellness benefits any time, any place and any way you want.
Nature’s experience is a major contributor to human health, wellbeing, and happiness. Hundreds of peer-reviewed research studies have revealed nature’s experience triggers critical health benefits available from no other source. Because of the wellness benefits nature’s experience provides, leading universities, health organizations and scientists agree that human design genetically depends to the moderating and balancing benefits nature’s experience provides.
Being in nature starts stress-inhibiting processes in the brain within minutes while simultaneously activating brain processes that improve your senses of well-being and contentment. You feel better, perform better, are healthier, happier, nicer and your life experience improves significantly by simply being exposed to nature’s experience.
Nature’s experience resets your mind and body in essential ways nothing else can.
Whether it’s hectic lives or access being inconvenient or non-existent, more than 80% of us don’t receive enough exposure to nature’s experience to leverage its wellness benefits. The results are dramatically increased anxiety, stress, depression, disease, aggression and significantly inhibited contentment and life quality. At the root of these issues are the devastating impacts of your body’s response to stress.
Stress is an essential human protective mechanism that triggers important changes to your body that help you respond to danger. Sometimes your body’s stress response becomes extreme or uncontrolled. This is when stress begins triggering damaging processes that break down tissues, organs, and entire systems and initiate disease processes like cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and countless others. The truth is stress is either directly responsible or aggravating to almost all non-traumatic human diseases and conditions.
Nature’s experience inhibits mechanisms that drive your physiological stress response – naturally and safely. Life Environments enables you to leverage nature’s wellness benefits any time, any place, and any way you like – even when Mother Nature is no place to be found!
