High price has nothing to do with raising your happiness quotient, as the best things in life often come free of cost. Sometimes give a miss to expensive restaurants, jazzy nightclubs or plush shopping malls and hit the outdoors for a rejuvenating experience. Science proves that a close encounter with nature can have a therapeutic effect on your mind. According to a series of studies published in the “Journal of Environmental Psychology”, spending time outdoors amidst nature makes one feel ‘more alive’. Richard Ryan, the professor of Psychology at the University of Rochester says, “Nature is fuel for the soul.” And in Cary, there are many different ways you can ‘re-fuel’ your mind. .  With its 39 greenway trails and some of the North Carolina's finest gardens and arboretums such as Hemlock Bluffs Nature Preserve and Stevens Nature Center, Cary lets its residents take in smells and sights of the flowered landscapes, appreciate the riots of color around and revel in the spectacular scenery, everyday.  If you happen to be an adrenaline-junkie, indulge in an array of recreational activates that include walking, jogging, bicycling and angling, among other things. Skating parks such as Sk8, court-style concrete parks such as Cary Tennis Park, tree-lined nature preserves – you name it and Cary has it all. Therefore, escape into the open nature whenever you are feeling low, indulge either in some recreational activities or contemplative relaxation to perk-up your mood instantly.
