Fishing For Mental Health

Fishing may not necessarily be the most exciting thing but the connection with Nature may just be what we need. Fishing for mental health sounds like a strange prescription but it’s cheap and, other than mosquito bites, really doesn’t have much of an adverse side effect. As we expand our understanding of holistic health, perhaps we can arm psychiatrists with rod and reel prescriptions.

If you’re feeling down or burnt out, it might be time to get back into nature.

According to Niels Eék, psychologist and co-founder of mental wellbeing and self-development platform Remente, spending time in nature may be the key to good mental health.

“Several researchers have looked into the health benefits connected to spending time out in nature. One study specifically, which was recently published in BioScience Journal, found that daily exposure to nature can, among other things, help reduce feelings of stress and even improve your self-esteem, for up to seven hours. Reconnecting with nature can also help you become more mindful and present in the moment,” Eék said in a statement.
