Nature and Meditation
« on: December 25, 2008, 04:20:36 PM »
As an avid hiker (I'll be thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail in 2011...woot!) I found this article interesting in that it encompasses two of my hobbies/passions:  Hiking and Meditation.

Quote
Walking in a park in any season or even viewing pictures of nature helps improve memory and attention by 20 percent. All it takes is 30 minutes. Even when it's cold. Even when we don't enjoy it. The study by U of Michigan researchers found that effects of interacting with nature are similar to meditating.
