The New York Times recently ran an article summarizing some scientific studies that seem to indicate exposure to parks and plants can boost immunity. One of the studies indicated that white blood cell counts were elevated by 50% in men who took two 2-hour walks in the woods for two days. Other benefits cited in the studies included decreased blood pressure, lower pulse rate, and decreased levels of cortisol.

We all know Nature is good for us. Science is backing up this claim in more and more studies. Take a look at the New York Times article and think about making a permanent change to your lifestyle…Get Outside and take a hike on a trail in a park!
