How Will You Celebrate Earth Day?
April 21, 2019
It is the time of the year when the weather is starting to warm up, the grass is getting green and in some places the spring flowers are starting to come up. This is the time of the year when most of us are looking for any reason to spend time outside, enjoying the spring sunshine.
Although each season has its own unique beauty, Spring is my favorite season. This is the season when all nature is awakened in all of its glory.
With Spring comes the awakening of nature, a time of renewal and rebirth. And this is why we are excited about celebrating our planet on April 21, 2019, Earth Day!
How will you spend your Earth Day? We will be spending out Earth Day outside, enjoying the sunshine and all that nature has to offer. The following are some reasons why we think you should also spend your Earth Day outside:
- Being outside and active simply feels great– Being outside and in nature can do wonders for reliving stress and anxiety. The beauty of nature can reportedly boost endorphin levels and dopamine production which gives us the feeling of being happy. Give it a try. In Edmonton, we have our wonderful river valley with so many places to explore either running, cycling or walking.
- You’ll get a big dose of Vitamin D– Vitamin D is essential for bone mineralization and reportedly has many other benefits and the most effective way of getting this vitamin is from sunshine.
- Smells of nature are therapeutic– If you’re like me, that earthy scent that comes when it is about to rain is almost soothing and the smell of fresh cut grass can make me feel energized or quite relaxed. Smells seem to have an amazing ability to transform mood. This is part of the reason we use aromatherapy diffusers with every one of our massages.
On April 21, 2019, we encourage you to choose an outdoor activity that will allow you to appreciate nature, to appreciate the gifts this earth has given to us. Happy Earth Day!
