There is no denial in the fact that nature has the power to heal. The concept of ecotherapy revolves around indulging in the activities which involve stepping out of the door. It can be anything you like – gardening, horse-riding, trekking or walking. Back in the days where village-style living dominated the most, people were much exposed to nature. It does not just help in boosting the wellbeing but is also prescribed for curing many diseases. And because this kind of ecotherapy is coming forward, why can't we start our day with a brisk walk or little bit of gardening? Being close to nature gives much-needed harmony and calmness.
