     David Suzuki is an extraordinary Canadian philosopher and environmentalist. In today’s post he looks at stress in our lives, especially those of us who live in cities, and shares the important effect that time spent in nature can have on our overall well-being. Take the lessons to heart and find ways to spend more time in natural settings.

Read…Reflect…Share Here, There, and Everywhere!

“For the most part, our brains didn’t evolve in cities. But in a few decades, almost 70 per cent of the world’s people will live in urban environments. Despite the prosperity we associate with cities, urbanization presents a major health challenge. Cities, with their accelerated pace of life, can be stressful. The results are seen in the brains and behaviour of those raised in cities or currently living in one.”
