A call to the wild
Your brain loves nature and animals
Do your over-stressed brain a favor and allow yourself a therapeutic portion of nature and animals.
Interacting with animals can release the hornom Oxytocin. It is also known as the “Love hormone” because it is released from the brain during physical interaction.
Animal assistance in therapy and education may have a multitude of positive effects on humans. Read more about this in the study “Psychosocial and Psychophysiological Effects of Human-Animal Interactions: The Possible Role of Oxytocin”. The study views 69 studies and their effect on the human and shows interesting findings.
“People underestimate the happiness effect. We don’t think of nature as a way to increase happiness. We think other things will, like shopping or TV. We evolved in nature. It’s strange we’d be so disconnected.” – Lisa Nisbet, psychology professor at Canada’s Trent University.
Spending time in nature helps re-calibrate your senses and make you aware of your environment. A Japanese study shows that a 15 min. walk in nature can lower the stress hormone, cortisol, by 16%. The Japanese use the terms “Forest bathing” which means just soaking in nature’s good vibes and high levels of oxygen. Read more about how nature impacts us in this study!
