L448: Nature Rx: How Nature Benefits Physical, Mental, and Emotional Health in Splash Spring 18 (Apr. 28, 2018)
We will be reviewing scientific literature that explores how quality time in nature benefits students in a multitude of ways including decreasing stress, inducing feelings of social connectedness, boosting physical health, creating better sleep, improving mood, increasing cognitive functioning and focus, and more! In addition to reviewing these studies, we will discuss how to incorporate the benefits of nature exposure in our own lives and how various species of plants can be used to boost our health in specific ways. We will also take part in a group mindfulness meditation outside to experience the health benefits of nature together! We will be walking to the Cornell Botanic Gardens as a group.
