Connection with Nature

Human beings are a part of nature, but we often live and act as if we are somehow separate or outside of it. It’s no surprise then that we find turning to nature as a place for healing, ritual, self-reflection, personal growth, and awe can physically improve our health, happiness, and well-being. Beauty, space, life, pattern, natural resources, and changing seasons and light—even viewing art and film depictions of nature—all have positive impacts on our brains: our nerves are calmed, and we sense more creativity, openness, generosity, resilience, connection, and oneness. Regaining our connection to nature can have many facets, all of which improve our well-being.
