Do you know someone who could benefit from the good vibes of nature? Maybe you have a friend who is struggling with being stuck inside, or you just want to put a smile on someone’s face and lift their day. Taking the time to share and show you care will go a long way, so go on: hit those buttons and send some nature to a friend!
Nature is good for us – yet for many, lockdown has put some serious limits on our access to the outdoors.
Now you can have Nature with you wherever you are – on your living room TV, your laptop, your smartphone – thanks to My Green Pod’s Nature TV!
Scientific evidence supports the fact that experiencing nature – even on a monitor screen – can do wonders for wellbeing. Please see our interview with Dr Matthew Adams below.
There’s also evidence that people are currently turning to the internet to shop and make themselves feel better, which (at least in part) explains the exponential rise we’ve seen in online shopping.
At My Green Pod, we’d love you to stop for a minute before you next shop online. Ask yourself two questions:
1. Do I really need it?
2. Is this an ethical product and if not, is there an ethical alternative?
Better still, before you make that next purchase – or if you’re just feeling the call of the wild – watch some Nature TV.
Love, Katie and Jarvis
So how exactly does nature affect us – and can it really bring the same benefits when delivered through a screen?
My Green Pod’s Katie Hill caught up with Matthew Adams, Principal Lecturer in Psychology at University of Brighton, to find out.
So there you have it! Access to nature can come in many forms – even a houseplant can trigger ‘soft fascination’ – and if you can’t get out, you can get an effective ‘dose’ of wellbeing through a screen.
