Episode 76: Healing Sounds of NatureAuthored on May 1, 2023
Do you find being outside in nature to be beneficial from a mental health perspective? What about in the winter? There is lots of evidence that spending time in nature can be beneficial in so many ways, and Lilly presents it from a Carleton University professor who proves even audio recordings of nature sounds can promote mental well-being.
We have Alexandra Euteneier back with us to talk more about her outdoor therapy, along with three tips for practicing mindfulness. What a great time to be outside! No bugs, fresh air, and not too hot or cold, one of my favourite times of the year.
