2 Hours of Nature Time

University of Exeter has prepared a study from nearly 20,000 people in England and have concluded that those who spent at least 120 minutes a week interacting with nature have significantly better physical and mental well-being than those who didn’t. The experiment when carried out in other venues such as town parks, woodlands, country parks and beaches have not found to be as useful as the former. The study also confirms that it didn't matter whether the 120 minutes was achieved in a single visit or over several shorter visits. The benefits extended for both men and women across all ages and ethnicities. People assumed that being around green places or merely living in a greener neighbourhood  was sufficient to maintain one’s health but the truth is that one needs to be in a very natural environment and not one that has just been artificially induced to just keep up with the current green trends.

Some of the Ayurvedic treatments in Kerala revolve around educating the basis of these researches. The Ayurvedic resorts in Kerala, Ayurveda training courses in Kerala have are also tackled to educate the same. In other news, the Yoga Center in Kannur has even adopted the Panchakarma Therapy in Kerala.
