I have found being in, photographing and viewing pictures of nature are healing to one’s soul.  Science has now confirmed that being in nature and looking at pictures of nature not only create harmony within but actually change your neuro-chemistry that creates feeling good chemicals that restore well being.



The word “medicine”in the dictionary means something that affects well being. Being in nature, or even viewing scenes of nature, reduces anger, fear, stress and increases overall well being. Exposure to nature not only makes you feel better emotionally, it contributes to your physical well being, reducing blood pressure, heart rate, muscle tension, and the production of stress hormones. It’s beneficial for mental illness such as anxiety, and restores attention capacity and mental fatigue. Being connected with nature is about feeling close to the wilder natural world. A relationship that helps us feel good overall and connected to ourselves and all of life. Emotions aren’t just feelings, they are linked to the function of our bodies. Our nervous system, heart and brain. As different emotions come and go, they shape and direct what we do. Research shows that nature helps keep our emotions regulated which is important for feeling good. The other way that nature connectedness can help bring well being is based on the beauty of nature. Beauty is a fundamental part of our lives. Recent research has suggested that noticing and engaging with nature’s beauty is key to the overall well being of our lives. . People who have a deeper response when viewing beauty in nature have better well being and seem to be healthier and happier.
