Return to Nature AudioBook Summary
From the co-author of The Spirit Almanac and mindbodygreen’s Senior Sustainability Editor comes a timely guide to reconnecting with the outdoors, with new science on why nature makes us healthier and happier in body and soul.
For centuries, we have known that nature is good for us. But in an era when climate change is accelerating and we spend 87 percent of our days indoors, it is clear that we are out of sync with the earth that nourishes us. In response, writer and environmentalist Emma Loewe blends new research and ancient knowledge on nature’s healing properties into a book divided into eight landscapes, with wisdom on how to explore and protect each one in return. Drawing off modern science, she uncovers why living by the ocean makes you measurably happier, why living near greenery helps you lives longer, and why forests can make us more relaxed within 90 seconds of walking among trees.
