5 Reasons Healing Outdoors Can Work for You

Have you been looking for an alternative to traditional office therapy that includes an outdoor component? Then you would very likely find that Healing Outdoors therapy is a compelling option for you.

I’ve had people tell me for some time “when you start doing therapy outside, let me know.” That time has arrived! I’m letting people know.

Therapy or Healing Outdoors on the trail works because you’re outdoors in amazing beauty. You feel better. You’re being active. Feeling alive. Feeling real!

Check out these five reasons why Healing Outdoors can just work for you.

You Love the Outdoors

People that love the outdoors seek to be outdoors. They look for every reason or excuse to hit the local hiking trail or go for a walk in the park. They find that being inside, even during the winter, is awful. They can’t wait for the day to end or the weekend to begin. Why? Because they want to be outside! If this description resonates with you, then having your therapy on the trail may be just the ticket for you.

You think Office Therapy is boring

Does the thought of being in an office setting for therapy bore you? Does it sound monotonous? Or at the very least make you feel a bit anxious? Have you tried office therapy and it just didn’t seem to work for you? Then Healing Outdoors is likely something you’d find worthwhile.

Therapy on the trail or in a local park is invigorating. Talking about life’s problems or concerns outdoors seems so much more doable. If this resonates with you, then definitely consider Healing Outdoors in the central Wasatch Mountains. 

You Want to be Outside. It just Feels Better

Does being inside on a sunny day make the day seem 16 hours long? Do you find yourself glancing out the window almost as often as we check our smart phones? If this sounds like you, then Healing Outdoors therapy sessions could very well work for you.

Clients and others in the community have told me for years that being inside can seem depressing. Exactly! Why not fight your depression, anxiety, or relationship problems on the trail?

You Believe that Moving Around Opens up Your Mind

Hiking or walking during a therapy session just seems to open up your mind and clear your head. Not only do you think more clearly, but you feel better. You’re definitely much less likely to have your mind wander during a Healing Outdoors therapy session. Oh, and if your mind does wander, it’s only because the beauty is so captivating that you were distracted by nature’s awesomeness.

You Find that Nature is Healing for You

This may be the most compelling reason for wanting to seek therapy on a local trail. Many people find being outside healing in and of itself. Combine that with the opportunity to talk through a problem or two on the trail and you’ve likely got a winning combination.
