submitted by

For many people, connecting with NATURE is an important way of reducing stress. You may want to consider incorporating a walk outside each day – or if you cannot be outside, visit websites with natural settings and sounds. This video from NATURE 365 captures the beauty of cranes in the snow in Japan.

Research in the field called Ecotherapy has shown the importance of time spent in nature and the relationship to the reduction of stress, anxiety, and depression.

Research at Cornell University has found that as little as 10 minutes in a natural setting can help college students feel happier and lessen the effects of both physical and mental stress.
