BRAIN FACT: Natural Settings have a Positive Impact on the Brain

Thursday, August 4, 2011

Time spent outdoors in nature is like pushing a "stress reduction button" for your brain.  

Research findings, "demonstrated that tranquil environmental scenes containing natural features, such as the sea, cause distinct brain areas to become `connected´ with one another whilst man-made environments, such as motorways, disrupt the brain connections." 

For an article on the study go to,  Tranquil scenes have a positive impact on the brain

Love your post and blog, Deborah...thanks for following me on Twitter...I came to check out your site and I'm so very glad I did. I know we are on the same page about many things...the foundations of self-esteem are laid in the first five years...parents have a golden opportunity to use Positive Parental Participation to help their young children develop a positive self-image. And being outdoors is a really important element also... did a post on just that topic two weeks ago.
I look forward to connecting with you and reading more about your "braininsights).
