Working in Nature Improves Mental Health

A study by the University of Essex for the Wildlife Trust has revealed that doing voluntary work in nature improves mental wellbeing. 95% of the 139 volunteers reported an improvement in their symptoms within six weeks. The work included shrub clearing, conservation work, tree planting and food harvesting.

The results demonstrate once again that the larger the role played by nature in our lives, the healthier we are – physically and mentally. The benefits of exercise, fresh air, sunlight and natural earth-based EMFs are so great that many doctors are now urging their patients to get out into nature as often as they can.

It seems that any system of healthcare that does not rely solely on medication and other conventional approaches can only be a good thing.
