The Power of Nature

It is spring here in NZ, that beautiful time of year when life seems to start anew.

Last week I was listening to a TED Radio Hour Podcast called ‘Beauty and the Brain’ in which Tierney Thys, a Marine Biologist, talks about the positive effects of nature. She talks about how just seeing nature; even if it is in a photograph or outside a hospital window, can be calming, reduce stress and boost creativity. So I am enjoying my daily dose of nature and maybe you can get yours from the photos here on this page.

 

If you are interested in the effects of nature on wellbeing then I definitely recommend listening to the podcast to get the full story. It can be downloaded for free here (NOTE: it is track 6, Podcast Extra: Live at TED)
