The Nature of Wellness™: Building a Better Inside by Getting Outside

The Nature of Wellness™:
Building a Better Inside by Getting Outside

June 20, 2024 | 12 p.m.–1 p.m. CT

A special joint webinar for NWI & WELCOA members only!
Throughout history, cultures worldwide have turned to nature as a primary source of increased health and well-being. The natural world has holistically impacted humans from the very beginning, acting as our first teacher, our first physician, our first spiritual guide, our first grocery store and pharmacy, and our first health and wellness coach. A growing body of evidence across various fields of study indicates that increased exposure to natural environments is associated with improvements in multiple dimensions of wellness.

While science continues to support this connection, and more programs are emerging to help us understand it, humans spend most of their time indoors. This webinar will address many health and wellness benefits, current research, and practical ways to “nature responsibly”—caring for ourselves and the environment.

    • describe the holistic benefits of time in the natural world.
