Chris Packham, Springwatch presenter, explains beautifully how important nature is for our mental health. It’s definitely worth a watch (click the link below).
With people moving out of cities to areas with access to the countryside, Chris explains the science of our brains and what we need for good mental health.
Getting close to nature is what people are choosing over the hustle and bustle of the big cities. He references a book by Emma Mitchell entitled, The Wild Remedy: 12 Months of Feeling Better In Nature.
This is a great read for anyone living in built-up areas and considering buying a property closer to nature. The book provides the science behind why that might be a good idea!
