The Republic Day, June 2nd, is approaching and what better way to spend this day than to go out and enjoy the benefits of nature?

A nice picnic, a trip out of town, a walk in the meadows, will certainly help the mood and entertain young and old.

Wear comfortable shoes and enjoy the day surrounded by greenery without a mobile phone or a computer.

Walking outdoors is one of the simplest and most effective ways to increase psycho-physical well-being.


Immersing yourself in nature, enjoying the light and the freshness of the morning air, is very good for the mind and body, even just 30 minutes a day of walking is enough to reap the benefits, those who have the opportunity and the time can also reach one hour.

It should be a habit and a real lifestyle to practice at least in spring and summer.

No excuses, therefore, for the lazy or the chilly!


If you are lucky enough to live in the suburbs of cities or better still in the countryside or near the sea, it is easy to enjoy nature at 360 degrees.

For citizens, on the other hand, forced to suffer from smog and urban traffic, the opportunities to immerse themselves in the green are mostly concentrated on weekends. The lucky ones who have a garden or a spacious balcony at home can enjoy at least the sunlight.

The farther away you are from urban contexts, the better.

The silence broken only by the sounds of nature has a calming effect on the mind.

The positive effects are immediate and long-term.

In addition to psychological stress, cholesterol and blood pressure, the risk of developing cardiovascular disease, diabetes, asthma and allergies also decreases.

  • It strengthens the immune system

Did you know that constant walking helps your immune system?

White blood cells increase and the sun's rays produce the sun vitamin, which is vitamin D , which is essential for bone health and for the absorption of minerals such as calcium and phosphorus.

  • It decreases stress and improves mood

In fact, the release of endorphins and the decrease in the level of stress help to improve the general state of health, counteracting the onset of seasonal ills.

After a nice walk have you noticed how you feel more free and relaxed?

Maybe you are not trained, you will feel pain in your legs , but certainly less than the psychic and physical benefit obtained.

  • Increase creativity

Have you ever thought that walking often helps formulate ideas?

It favors relaxation and new ideas precisely because we relax and get out of the rigid schemes to which we are subjected for work reasons every day. Unplug and give us moments away from home, satisfying the view with the blue of the sky and the green of the meadows, is a precious gift for the mind.

And how did you decide how to spend this day?
