Nature-It’s Good for the Brain!

There was an article in The New York Times last month that said “A walk in the park may soothe the mind and, in the process, change the workings of our brains in ways that improve our mental health” You can read the article here.

I knew walking in nature helps to calm me, makes me focus on the beauty around me, so now I have the added plus of the possibility that it is actually doing good things for my brain.

Here are some of the things I saw on my walk today. Wishing you a great weekend003006010002014

  1. I often comment to MGW about the African wildlife…how easy they were to sight etc., all the while lamenting the fact that Australian wildlife keeps its distance. However, I have never taken time to sit and watch our wildlife, that is “smell the roses” as you have done.
