Healthy Monday: Give a Nod to Nature

Nature’s stress-relieving effects have been praised and practiced for thousands of years. Recent studies have confirmed this simple notion: people recover faster from stressful and painful incidents when exposed to natural environments, and those who can access “nearby nature” have been found to be healthier and more satisfied with their home, job, and life in general!
This week, fit in at least one, 10-15 minute session with nature. Whether it be taking a hike in the woods, sitting outside and listening to the birds and insects, or reflecting upon a body of water, take time to reacquaint yourself with nature’s restorative power!
