The Nature Fix Summary Book Florence Williams takes on a gigantic task of uncovering the truth behind nature’s powers. Can nature make us happier, healthier, and more creative? By traveling all over the world and digging into complicated research, Williams presents the audience with evidence supporting the thesis. Yes, nature can do all these things. However, this book goes into far more detail and discussion relating to the power of nature. Williams recognizes, first-hand, the challenges of getting enough time in nature when our current society is moving indoors for longer periods of time. After moving to Washington DC from Colorado, Williams experiences a bit of natural whiplash – and she feels the strains. The city is crowded, noisy, and has less green space than she is accustomed to. And, her stress levels show it. By taking on this assignment, Williams is able to travel across the United States and abroad to look for evidence that suggests individuals and cities need to prioritize nature.
In many respects, research into nature's effects on the human psyche is still in its
infancy. Florence Williams demonstrates this in The Nature Fix by not only
recounting the history of scientists' investigations into the subject, but by

The Nature Fix: Why Nature Makes Us Happier, Healthier, and More Creative (2017) explores emerging scientific research into how outdoor excursions benefit the brain and body. Although Romantic and Transcendentalist writers in the nineteenth century extolled the virtues of spending time in nature, scientists and psychologists in most countries failed to study the subject until the late 1990s and early 2000s… Purchase this in-depth summary to learn more.

'Brilliant' -- Matt Haig In 2016, Isabel Hardman's mind, in her own words, 'stopped working' as she fell prey to severe depression and anxiety. She took time off on long-term sick leave and despite several relapses has returned to work with a much improved ability to cope. She has since become one of the UK's most prominent public voices on mental health. She credits her better health to her passion for exercise, nature and the great outdoors - from horse-riding and botany to cold-water swimming and running. In The Natural Health Service, she draws on her own personal experience, interviews with mental illness sufferers and psychologists, and the latest research to examine what role wildlife and exercise can play in helping anyone cope with mental illness. Straight-talking, thoroughly-researched, and compassionate, this important and often funny book will fascinate anyone touched by a mental health condition, whether themselves or through the experiences of a loved-one.
The report describes the vital contribution that ecosystems can and must make in our efforts to cut very large emissions of greenhouse gases that are needed if we are to avoid the worst effects of global climate change. Vigorous efforts are needed to decrease carbon dioxide concentration in the atmosphere and doing so will be impossible without addressing carbon losses from ecosystems such as forests and peatlands. Managing ecosystems for carbon can not only reduce carbon emissions; it can also actively remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Restoring some of the large amounts of carbon lost from agricultural soils and drylands has the greatest potential here.--Publisher's description.
