Header LogoNature Pill

Many studies demonstrate the positive influence of nature experiences on human wellbeing. There is mounting evidence for the benefits to psychological well-being, physical health, mental performance, spiritual experience and social interaction. What we know less about is this: what dose of nature is enough and what type of nature experience brings the best results. Like any doctor’s prescription, the choice of specific medicine and the dose is person-specific. It is the goal of our research group to provide guidelines for prescribing a nature pill that will bring these benefits to you. Use the links below to see where we are is this search.
