'Tis the season to give yourself or someone special a delightful gift of less stress and more life.
Have you ever noticed how much better you feel when you’re walking in the forest, along the beach or by a stream? That’s nature transforming your brain and mind in healthy ways. Research shows that nature's experience makes us smarter, more productive, healthier, nicer, and happier. It does this by inhibiting our damaging responses to stress while simultaneously refreshing our brain and body in balanced ways nothing else can – not even drugs. The human response to nature is so strong more leading scientists believe we’re genetically linked to it.
Now, imagine fusing that same experience with your meditation, yoga, exercise, and relaxation routines.
Until now, the only way to benefit from nature was to be there. We’ve changed that.
