Getting Outside Into Nature Can Help You Heal

naturehealA study done for the National Recreation and Park Association found that spending time in nature speeds up healing in a variety of ways.

It cuts the time it takes to recover from surgery, improves the way the immune system works and helps diabetics achieve healthier blood glucose levels.

How long does it take to get these kinds of benefits? How about five minutes a day according to a study from the University of Essex, England!
