What is a Prescription for Nature?

Have you heard of ecotherapy?  This concept is becoming an increasingly popular way to improve mood and energy while also lowering stress levels by connecting with the natural world and environment. Please take a look at this interesting post by Lisa Vanlint entitled ‘Take Two Trees and Call Me in the Morning’ which can be found here on the Talkin’ Trash with UHN blog.

    Yes, we are becoming more aware of the benefits of nature. I take this into consideration when “prescribing” outdoor exercise. Did you see the book, “Your Brain on Nature”?

      Hi Nancy,

      Thank you for your comment!
      I have not heard of the book “Your Brain on Nature”, but the description sounds very interesting. Thank you for the recommendation.
