How Your Environment Shapes Your Person

The Road Rage

How many times have you driven through the streets of Lagos and your eyes catch sight of gentlemen; dressed in starched shirts, crisp ties, and probably an Italian suit to match, screaming obscenities at each other and maybe even going as far as exchanging blows on the streets?

A familiar sight right?

It has become the norm to find impatient and irate people on the streets. Road rage is now a part of our everyday lives that we don’t even consider a huge problem anymore. 

Premature Aging

You’ve also probably experienced shock when someone tells you their age. Premature aging is a fast-growing epidemic in the 21st century and some are not even easily noticeable but the victim already experiences things like bruising easier, having dry skin more often, or even wrinkles in places that were previously smooth.

That also sounds familiar?

The Modern Disorders

Too much screen time? Overeating?

These are modern disorders that cause problems like anxiety, obesity, sleep problems, body aches, lack of focus, and lots more.

Digital advancement and easier access to things in the world have been both an advantage and a disadvantage because of environmental standards. 

These problems have become part of daily life and the roots of these problems are simple…

— environment!

According to research, our stress levels are influenced by our surroundings. Your neurological, endocrine, and immunological systems’ functions are all affected by what you see, hear, and experience.

You might experience anxiety, sadness, or helplessness as a result of the stress of an uncomfortable environment. Your immune system can also be suppressed as a result, which raises your blood pressure, heart rate, and muscle tension.

“One of the first conditions of happiness is that the link between man and nature shall not be broken.”

—Leo Tolstoy

You need to find life in Nature.

Being in nature or even just watching natural scenes makes you feel better and less stressed, angry, or afraid. Not only does being in nature improve your mood, but it also benefits your physical health by lowering your heart rate, blood pressure, muscular tension, and stress hormone production.

People who live in nature are calm and better emotionally and are less prone to volatile outbursts like road rage and other lunacy that might arise out of stress because spending time around natural elements automatically reduces stress.

On top of having refined physical and mental health, studies have shown that people living close to nature tend to age slower and live longer than those who do not. Your skincare remedy might just be as simple as living in nature.

Recreational activities are also easy to find in a Natural environment, thereby providing an alternative to modern disorders like excessive screentime and also limiting the adverse effects. Motivation for health-promoting activities like exercise is also easier to find in natural settings.

There are several other benefits of spending your time in nature, some examples are:

  • Staring at green plants helps improve the eyes.
  • Walking in nature helps to generate the highest quality of creative ideas.
  • Being in nature removes overwhelming stimuli and this restores the attentional system and replenishes focus.
