What is nature? Science wants to understand nature. Therefore it is important, how the word nature is defined: Nature is everything that was not made by man. So the definition of nature excludes all things that were introduced by mankind. All those human developments are summarized as culture.
Nature keeps changing from season to season, from minute to minute. If the sea was a bright blue in the morning, by noon it has become an emerald green hue. The color of the sky keep changing throughout the day, from the pale pink at dawn to a dazzling blue at mid morning and a bright orange by sunset and purple at twilight. Nature reflects our moods. When the sun shines, we feel happy and hopeful.
We have all learned that Nature is man’s best friend. The sunset and sunrise, the song of birds, their evening gatherings, the breeze that sways trees and the winds that blow your mind away… it’s all nature and beauty divine. Nature is everywhere and not just in resorts, parks, forests and mountains. It’s even in the cities. How many times a day do we come across places that have gardens, trees or even plants and how many times do we notice them and relish their serenity? Sometimes even our homes have gardens. In the midst of our busy, hectic, stressful lives, we fail to think about anything other than duties and few priorities. We spend all our free time watching TV or playing on the internet. If we spent some of this time tending gardens or walking in the park, we’d find it way more relaxing, if not entertaining, than anything else. Nature is serene, beautiful, lovely, unique and a gift to every one of us. Experiencing it should be a part of our lives.
Spending time in nature can make you feel better is intuitive. We all feel this to be true, and many of us have anecdotes of our own or from friends and family that support that idea. people who have been suffering from stress, sickness, or a trauma can spend time quite contemplative time in gardens or taken to the mountains or wood heal. But nature is not just wilderness. The benefits of nature can also be found in our communities’ parks and green spaces. Nature is good for our health benefits.
Human well-being depends on the benefits that nature provides for free, everyday and everywhere. Human depend on ecosystems such as forest and coral reefs for clean water, fertile soils, food, fuel, storm protection, minerals and flood control.
