Sometimes the best you can do is to escape to the nature, to enjoy the mystery of the forests, to feel the cold water of the lakes on ones feet and enjoy the sound of the wind in the trees. Walking in Finnish nature not only refreshes and relaxes the brain, but also frees the spirit. Regularly spending time in the forest is proven to lower blood pressure, detox your body and improve your overall mood.
