No one can go back and change his start ... but anyone can start today and change his finish! Caring about and maintaining our health is very important. We only have one body, so it's our job to keep it running in the best way we can, by paying attention to and working to improve our mental and physical health. Serbia has 5 national parks and 22 nature reserves. Over 31% of Serbia is covered by forest. National parks take up 10% of the country's territory.
Nature is medicine. The natural environment offers many benefits for health and well-being. Taking a walk or a hike to enjoy the scenery in the fresh air can help in calming and clearing the mind. It can manage stress and depression and improve one's overall health. It can prevent disease and help people recover from illness. Experiencing nature can help tackle obesity, coronary heart disease and mental health problems. People live longer if they live near areas of green space. It gives you the feeling of being energized and having more vitality.
Being in nature helps people improve their focus and memory. Memory can be improved by walking, or even just by looking at an image of a natural scene. A walk in the woods can be very calming and relaxing, a fantastic stress-reliever. It can also be an opportunity to challenge yourself physically. Using the trails or hills will give you more intense workout. Nature walking takes you away from the traffic and pollution and let's you slow down and breathe clean air. Where nature has not been rearranged by the hand of man, you will find beauty everywhere.
