Nature and Healing: How nature can affect your ability to heal.
Let’s take a deep dive into how our green behavior can affect our mental health in a positive way! Because when we protect the environment, it protects us! A UK Study by Jo Barton and Mike Rogerson found that individuals who were exposed to more green space reported less mental distress, less anxiety and depression, greater wellbeing and healthier cortisol levels. Being in nature promotes mindfulness and encourages us to be present in the moment instead of letting our mind go to our endless to-do lists. Additionally, by embracing a green lifestyle and doing your part to help the Earth it gives you a greater sense of belonging and purpose.
