Overview

The Healing Power of Nature is a practical exploration of how spending time with nature can influence our health and well-being. Along the way, John calls on nearly 40 years as a patient and health education producer, his own fight with illness, and his years as a lover of the outdoors, while presenting scientific facts. Enjoy John's waterscape and wildlife photographs while discovering how to reconnect with nature. Other topics include: Mental Health, photography, and happiness. Learn about which nature we are referring to, the importance of calming your mind, the health benefits of the outdoors, happiness and the restorative advantage of nature, and why it is especially important to share this spirit with children-all of which will inspire you to spend more time with nature.
