Science is demonstrating what we intuitively know: Nature makes us happy, and studies have shown that even our brain changes from getting outside. Nature is a source of wonder and inspiration, and throughout history, people have long been interested in its healing power. What is so wonderful about nature is that it is a free resource, and you don’t need to go far to experience the bliss of a natural environment. Even a brief walk in the woods, drive by the ocean, or sitting quietly in your garden can do the trick!
