“The Nature Fix: Why Nature Makes us Happier, Healthier, and More Creative” is a nonfiction book written by Florence Williams. The book examines the many ways that nature can improve our mental and physical well-being, as well as our creativity and cognitive function.
The book draws on research from a variety of fields, including neuroscience, psychology, and environmental science, to explore the benefits of spending time in nature. Williams also writes about her own experiences spending time in nature, including visits to a forest therapy program in South Korea, a nature-based addiction treatment program in Finland, and a “forest kindergarten” in Switzerland.
The author presents evidence that nature has the power to improve mood, reduce stress and anxiety, improve cognitive function, and boost the immune system. She also explores the ways that nature can improve creativity, and problem-solving abilities and foster feelings of awe and wonder.
The book offers an engaging and accessible look at the science behind the healing power of nature and will appeal to anyone interested in the intersection of nature and health.
