Book & Studies: Your Brain On Nature 


"The brain is absolutely influenced by Nature, and it is no longer an option to write off the philosophers and poets as mere romantic dreamers. The results of the investigations revisited in this [chapter; book; Your Brain on Nature] should serve as a wake up call for all of us. The mortality [and vitality] of individuals, nations, and even the planet itself is dependent upon the recognition and acceptance that Nature is a part of us. Our perception of stress- our mental state; our immunity, our happiness, and our resiliency- is chemically influenced by the nervous system and it’s response to Nature."

--page 33 - by Eva Selhub and Alan Logan

 A wonderful synopsis of multiple scientific studies which have proven that nature and nature videos can have remarkable benefits for human health. Natural environments are more likely to promote positive emotions, and viewing and walking in nature have been associated with heightened physical and mental energy. Nature has also been found to have a positive impact on children who have been diagnosed with impulsivity, hyperactivity and attention-deficit disorder."
