Can being in nature make us better? What is forest bathing, how can recess help improve student behavior, and can five minutes outside really make a difference in your mood? Listen to science writer Florence Williams talk about her book The Nature Fix: Why Nature Makes Us Happier, Healthier, and More Creative and get some scientific encouragement to go outside. This talk was recorded at the Alberta Rose Theatre in Portland in March 2018.
Check out Florence’s other podcasts too:
— The 3-Day Effect, loosely based on The Nature Fix
— Breasts Unbound, based on her book Breasts: A Natural and Unnatural History
— Episodes for the XX Factor Podcast for Outside Magazine, including the episode XX Factor: How the Sports Bra Changed History
