Nature is messy, complicated, and downright amazing. We plow it under for food, pave it over for roads, and clearcut it for resources. In most urban areas, it survives in the form of a few small parks and paths.
However, when we isolate ourselves from nature, are we isolating ourselves from an incredibly simple and powerful tool to make ourselves better and our lives easier?
- Nature can make you feel better.
- Nature reduces stress.
- Nature helps make us more creative.
- Nature improves our memory.
- And, Nature makes us better people.
Those are some pretty substantial health benefits of nature, but can I notice the change in a week?
Health Benefits of Nature Experiment
Well, the scientific studies point to some REALLY impressive benefits of getting in touch with nature, but can I see the difference in a week or less?
I’ll be monitoring on all of the stated benefits of getting in touch with nature to see if I can “move the needle”.
Day 1 saw no real movements, but I confess I’ve been suffering from a killer headache tonight, so now that it’s passing, we’ll see what tomorrow bring!
