How many times have we heard that that hugging trees is good? Well, one study has shown that it is true.
This “fashion” appeared in the era of the hippies, and at that time, no one believed.
The simple fact of being surrounded by trees, has the same effect as a hug. Can you imagine living in a place surrounded by forests? Now I understand the longevity of my grandparents (hehe).
There are several scientists who have contributed in recent times different benefits are earned by hugging trees. In fact, there are some religions or schools of thought, and dealing with these issues for years.
Some of the proven benefits are as follows
- Mental diseases
- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
- Concentration levels
- Reaction times
- Headache Relief
But how these benefits are achieved?
Well, it seems that everything vibrates. And when I say everything, that’s all. Our body is constantly vibrating like nature. When two vibrations are combined, it affects different biological behaviors. This means that the vibration of a tree in line with ours, will affect our body (although not notice).
The idea of vibrations has a backup of hundreds of scientific studies.
One school of thought is best known Taoism. The Taoist Master Chia teaches his students to meditate in nature, specifically with trees. By this meditation teaches align one’s body with the “aura” (or magnetic field) of a tree. Chia explains that this alignment can help to flow and transform all our negative energy into positive.
If we teach from small to very young to treat and care for nature, making them understand how important it is, certainly we will ensure a better world for them and all who come after.
What we do know for sure it is that when a person is surrounded by trees in a forest, note the tranquility and being comfortable.
