I know I am not alone in this. When I began writing this post my wife ran into the following article published by the BBC. It describes how exposure to nature is good for you. It is based on a scientific research article published <here>. It showed that people who where exposed to nature for 30 days or longer were significantly happier than before they were exposed to nature. As I mentioned in my blog about Richard Lowe's book, he has seen the same in the research he has reviewed. The book on the Blue Mind by Wallace Nichols has the same premise (see the list of books I am reading). While it is slow reading for me, it is not a bad book (it is actually a great book); but I have so many other important things I am doing, like exploring nature and sailing.
