Nature Time

Nature relieves stress. A short nature walk daily and weekly nature immersion experiences can have a drastic impact on mood and stress levels.  Anxiety, depression, impulsivity, fatigue, and more can be helped by time in nature. 


This effect is so strong that research suggests that even just looking pictures of nature can relieve stress. We've added a nature slideshow to this page for your enjoyment. You might consider some light and slow nostril breathing while you enjoy the images.
