          When I was growing up I spent many hours exploring the acres of woodland behind our house. We all need to lose ourselves in nature as often as we can.This essay from the David Suzuki Foundation shares research supporting the positive effects that spending time in a natural setting offers us. Make room in your life for these healing interludes.

“Spending time in nature regularly is not a panacea for mental health but it’s an essential component of health and psychological resilience. Nature helps us withstand and recover from life’s challenges. Even city dwellers can find nearby nature — a garden, local park or trail — to give their overworked brains a break.”
