The Nature Effect
From Japan to the United States, via Sweden, Germany and Canada, Natura heads off to meet researchers from the most prestigious universities (Stanford, University of British Colombia,…) – biologists, neuroscientists, experts in environmental psychology –who are presently demonstrating that «experiencing nature» stimulates unexpected biological and psychological resources and represents a boundless source of well-being.
These scientists believe that there’s enough proof today to assert that an immersion, even of short duration, in natural environments (including urban environments), leads to regulation of the heartbeat, a significant decrease in cortisol/stress, a reduction in cardiovascular disorders and better still, a significant boost to our natural immune system.
Their studies also show that regularly immersing oneself in nature reduces anxiety and mental fatigue, improves our attention and cognitive functions and can even help fight against depression.
