Everyday Neuro 018 Part 1: Nature and the brain - How our living environment can enhance mental and physical health
Listen now
In Episode 18, I discuss the topic of nature and how it can enhance our wellbeing, feelings of safety and security and ultimately our health and productivity. In Part 1, I am joined by interior designer Tara Cantwell of Cantwell Interiors who provides rich insight into how we can bring nature into our homes and workspaces. In Part 2, learn about how taking a walk in nature can reduce our fight and flight system, reducing stress and promoting productivity thanks to a reduction in activity in the region of the brain called the amygdala (Part 2 is exclusive to members of the Everyday Neuro Patreon site).
