“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.” – Albert Einstein
During the early 1980s, a Japan-based agency advised people to take regular walks in the woods for better health. Since then several studies have shown that spending quality time with nature is responsible for many measurable beneficial changes in the body. The Japanese called that Shinrin-Yoku which literally means forest-bathing.
A Japanese forest therapy researcher found that people who spent 40 minutes walking in a forest had lower levels of the stress hormone compared with those who spent 40 minutes walking in a lab. Similarly, another researcher found that trees emit aromatic compounds when inhaled, which can spur healthy biological changes.
Recent studies have also linked nature to symptom relief for health issues like heart disease, depression, cancer, anxiety, and attention disorders. That’s why the developers of Hiranandani Parks have created a fine range of themed gardens to help the residents enjoy nature and lead a healthy lifestyle.
Gardens that can lower blood pressure
Spending time outside with nature is good for the heart, say studies. High blood pressure affects nearly 1 in 3 Indians. Visiting the green spaces at Hiranandani Parks may be a simple and affordable way for the residents to improve their heart health. Fresh air could be a factor also since air pollution has been linked to a higher risk for heart attacks. The presence of more than 2000 trees at Hiranandani Parks helps to keep the gardens and environment fresh.
Gardens that restore wellbeing
One of the most important benefits of the gardens at Hiranandani Parks is general well-being. Recent studies have shown that time in nature is associated with a positive mood and psychological well-being. The special features at the themed gardens that include scenic walkways and provisions to sit and relax help the residents to spend quality time with nature.
Another important benefit of time spent with nature is the ability to pay attention. This also provides a respite for our over-tasked minds and refreshes them for new tasks.
Gardens that help residents with depression and anxiety
With a fast-based stress-filled lifestyle most urban dwellers are far more likely to have anxiety and mood disorders than people who live in rural areas. The good news is that a study has confirmed that people who walk for 90 minutes in a natural setting are likely to release stress hormones. The study also says that the rapidly urbanizing world needs accessible natural areas for mental health. That’s why the gardens at Hiranandani Parks are themed to suit the needs of the residents. From a refreshing butterfly garden to a spices and herbs garden and an exclusive garden for senior citizens, the expansive gardens help the residents to enjoy nature, rejuvenate, and lead a healthy lifestyle.
