Nature Deficit Disorder

October 9, 2015 - 10:59 am

It’s no surprise that the natural environment affects our nervous system and bodies in positive ways, yet kids today spend more than seven hours a day in front of entertainment media and an average of a half an hour outside. We highlight the power and benefits of nature on us this week.

Episode 1: Hilarie Cash is the Co-Founder of Restart Life Internet Addiction Recovery Center in Redmond, Washington. Cash and Ellen Krumm, a psychotherapist who specializes in problematic use of technology speak to how nature is one of the most powerful tools in healing internet addiction.

Episode 2 – 5: Wilderness Awareness School, Executive Director, Warren Moon describes how to make the most of the practice of spending time in nature.
