The Nature Fix

The idea that being in the wild outdoors "makes us happier, healthier, and more creative" may ring intuitively true to nature lovers. The Nature Fix justifies this intuition, delving into the cutting-edge scientific research that is proving how and why nature benefits the human brain and body. From the practice of shinrin yoku ("forest bathing") in Japan, to experiments of playing birdsong for elementary students, to measuring the changes in blood pressure caused by the scent of cypress trees (and so much more)—scientists are finding remarkable relationships between nature and human health. It's fascinating and delightfully entertaining stuff—and carries an urgently powerful message for our rapidly urbanizing world. (CH)
