Something as simple as a walk in the woods can help us live a better life
In this episode, I am talking with Journalist and prize-winning author Florence Williams about her latest book Nature Fix. We discuss the current problems with our hyper-connected and indoor life and how getting outside can actually help make use happier, healthier and more creative.
Some of the points we talk about
- What happens to our brain and body when we go outside
- Programs that some countries are putting in place to get people in nature
- Things that you can do
- Getting outside under trees
- Spending a few hours every week in nature
- How longer bouts in nature can help
