Connect to nature

Did you know Canadians spend up to 10 hours on screens a day? Spending less time outdoors means you might be missing out on the health benefits of being in nature. Spending time in green space can improve working memory, cognitive flexibility and attentional control. Even exposure to nature sounds can be recuperative. Take advantage of being in nature today by eating lunch outside, taking a walk or simply enjoying a window view – even feeling connected to nature can improve mental health and emotional wellbeing.
