I don’t need a scientific study to tell me that spending time in nature is good for well being. I experience it every time I go for a walk through the woods, hit the bike trails, or even just sit on the patio. I feel more alive and joyful.
When I lived in Montreal, several of my Canadian friends said the same phrase to me often, ”let’s go outside and breathe fresh air.” At first I thought what a strange thing to say, I never heard anyone say that to me before, but it works. By going outside no matter what the temperature and believe me in Montreal it can get to -30* it feels great to go outside and breathe. It refreshes your mind body and soul.
