Mama Earth can have remarkable benefits on our brain and overall health!

Recent scientific studies point out that spending more time in natural environment promotes positive emotions. Going out for a stroll in a park or natural setting has been associated with increased physical and mental energy!

Spending time in nature has also been found to have significant impact on children who have been diagnosed with neurological diseases such as

  • impulsivity,
  • hyperactivity,
  • attention deficit disorder

What you see, hear, and experience at any moment is contantly impacting your mood, and also how your nervous, endocrine, and immune systems are working. A study published in the Journal of Environmental Psychology (June, 2010) found participants to have a significant boost in energy levels and mood by just spending 20 minutes in nature.
