February is the month to remember that you are special, unique and very important.
2020 tested our mental health in new ways. For some, Winter 2021 is proving to be even more of a challenge. How can we find mental health benefits when were are stuck inside?
We can gain outdoor health benefits in unlikely ways. Sitting quietly for five minutes on your porch, standing outside for several minutes, or looking at the outdoors from your window-accomplishes health benefits.
Studies show that even five minutes of outdoor time can lead to improved mental health.
The outdoors has more health benefits than we realize.
“If I were to give a prescription for time spent in nature, which I do prescribe to all of my patients, it would be to come up with something that you enjoy doing for even small, small increments of time and treat it as a prescription.”
- Suzanne B Hackenmiller, M.D. OB-GYN and Integrative Medicine physician
