Longer nature experience shows continuous decrease of cortisol and alpha – amylase but not that dramatic as within first 30 minutes of it. For optimal effects of spending time in nature, results suggest that key factor is type of activity. Concentration of alpha – amylase was significantly lower when participants were spending their time in nature in a more active way.
Although spending time in nature is time well spent for us, it has some negative environmental consequences too. Many natural habitats are disrupted or polluted, disturbing the wildlife in them.
Keeping all of this in mind, our Isatisians crew decided to take part in a nature – friendly race to raise awareness about environmental protection and to do something good for their health. Some members of our team are already experienced athletes and hikers, ready to lead us on this journey. This year’s Vučko Trail 2021 is a great opportunity to organize a few preparation hikes during spring and get back on track after a long winter, but also to spend some time together outdoors while walking together towards our goal! Nature is our friend on a way to a happier, stress – free life.
