“…the “naturally nice” effect doesn’t so much hinge on daily hikes through the woods as it does paying attention to the natural elements we encounter each day.”
There you have it: MSNBC and the University of Rochester. It must be real.
Birds around our houses, squirrels in the trees, a spider hanging on her web on the carport uprights. Nature is all around us, even in the densest of urban neighborhoods.
It doesn’t take a trip to a national park, a week long back pack in the wilderness, a kayak expedition in the fjords. Just go outside, look around and open yourself to the experience of Nature everywhere.
Then share your experience with your friends.
