Soulful Speaking



For some people, there’s nothing better than being out in nature. However, you have never learned to enjoy it. There are a wide variety of reasons you should master your aversion to nature and just as many ways to enjoy nature (even if you hate being outside).

Why You Should Get Outside

So, you enjoy sitting curled up on your apartment couch with a great book and a bottle of wine. There’s nothing wrong with that. However, you may not realize the myriad of health benefits that come from being outside in nature. The fresh air of nature can help clear your lungs while outdoor exercise can boost your metabolism and help you lose weight.

In fact, researchers have found that being in nature has helpedalleviate the symptoms of a wide range of diseases including:

  • Alzheimer’s
  • Dementia
  • Asthma
  • Depression
  • Heart Health
  • Obesity
  • Stress
  • Type II Diabetes

Not Exactly Roughing It

While you may not enjoy getting down and dirty in the great outdoors, there are ways you can enjoy the beauty of nature in comfort. For example, some campers prefer luxury camping itemssuch as:

  • The Sky Lodge tent, which stands at 7-feet high and which has 146-square feet of sleeping room. And closets.
  • Portable propane ovens and stones.
  • Espresso makers. Seriously.
  • Inflatable outdoor sofas.
  • High-heel sandals.

These items may not be essential for a camping experience, but they certainly can make it more comfortable. And they certainly don’t need to distract you from relaxing and enjoying the glory of being surrounded by nature.

Non-Camping Outdoor Activities

If you hate camping, there are a variety of other outdoor activities you can perform in nature. These activities include:

  • Kite Flying
  • Sky Diving
  • Air Sphering
  • Astronomy
  • Bungee Jumping
  • BASE Jumping
  • Hang Gliding
  • Plane or Helicopter Tours
  • Wing Walking
  • Hiking
  • Swimming
  • Mud Bathing

Out of these activities, there is surely something you’d enjoy doing. If you’re uncertain, just try something out: chances are, you’ll love being in nature so much, you’ll want to do it again as soon as possible.
