take a hike!

Looking for another reason to get into Mother Nature?  A walk outside is more than just exercise: research from the University of Michigan has found that being in nature can improve cognitive function!  In one study, an hour long trek in a woody park improved subjects’ performances on memory and attention tests by as much as 20 percent, compared with a walk in an urban environment.  Furthermore, some Japanese research shows that a day spent in the forest can improve immune function and decrease concentrations of adrenaline and cortisol for as long as a week.

Happy exploring!
