The Nurture of Nature: The health benefits of nature

May 16, 2013

The Minding Our Bodies project has released an overview on the relationship of nature to physical and mental health. “The Nurture of Nature: Natural Settings and Their Mental Health Benefits” offers a brief review of recent research examining the impacts of natural environments specifically on mental health and well-being.

The report includes findings that show positive health effects by viewing or being active in natural settings and some examples of therapeutic applications.
