Nature Counter./Biophelia Counter
" A recent study of 20,000 people published in the journal Scientific Reports finds that people who spend at least 120 minutes per week - that’s about 18 minutes a day - in nature are far more likely to report being in good health and having higher psychological well-being, as compared to those who don’t embrace nature. People who spent some time in nature, but fewer than 120 minutes a week, "were no more likely to report good health or high well-being than those who reported 0 minutes," the study authors found. "

You can see the benefits of time in the park put on Nature Counter's linkedin page here- https://www.linkedin.com/posts/nature-counter-by-crowddoing_forestbathing-naturedose-attentionrestorationtheory-activity-6805531019593302016-1hnd, You can see more background on our Nature Counter team here- https://www.linkedin.com/posts/nature-counter-by-crowddoing_forestbathing-naturedose-attentionrestorationtheory-activity-6805531019593302016-1hnd. You can see a post about how just 30 minutes a week in nature reduces the chance of depression by 7%.
120 Minutes per week in nature is also geo-locateable on phones. Have you gotten your 120 minutes a week at medium edose nature, or 90 minutes a day of high dose nature?
That is determinable by if your smart phone shows you in the park for how many minutes.
We aim to build an app that counts how many minutes in nature each week you have spent and reporting that back to the person. This is like step counts, but based on time in nature as walks through non-parks don’t count for the nature counter.
- - Participate in weekly discussions across teams and stakeholders on ways to reach project goals.
- Time-based nature benefits-
- 15 Minutes in Nature
- Decrease in pulse rate by 3.9%
- Decrease in systolic blood pressure by 1.9%
- Decrease in diastolic blood pressure by 2.1%
- Lower levels of cortisol (stress hormone)
- Increased parasympathetic nerve activity and decreased sympathetic nerve activity. The sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems work together to control respiration, digestion, and heart rate. When you are calm, the parasympathetic nervous system is increased, lowering your heart rate and respiration, and increasing digestion. In a stressful situation, the fight or flight (sympathetic) response is triggered, dilating pupils, increasing heart rate and respiration, which allows you to breathe faster.
- Feel more relaxed, yet energized
- 30 minutes in nature
- All of the benefits from 15 minutes in nature AND
- Increased attention span
- Reduction in depression symptoms by 7%
- Reduction in high blood pressure by 9%

- An overall sense of well-being and happiness
- A better, more restful sleep
- 150 minutes (2.5 hours) in nature
- All of the benefits from 15, 30, 40, 50, and 120 minutes in nature AND

Nature benefits we're communicating:
Performance on backwards digit-span (a cognitively demanding task that requires directed attention/requires the person to block out irrelevant stimuli and focus) significantly improved while walking in nature Maintain the focus staring at something on paper better during and after a walk in nature. The ability to focus was not only recuperated by nature, but was even better compared to before going out into nature. A faster and more stable pattern of responding on the Attention Network Task Cognitive performance especially for self-perceived affect was found to improve significantly more after nature interactions compared to urban interactions. Overall, BDS ( backwards digit span) performance improved on average by 0.75 (SD = 2.11) points from pre- to post-nature interactions and 0.29 (SD = 2.19) BDS points from pre- to post urban environment interactions. Reduce the population prevalence of depression and high blood pressure by up to 7% and 9% respectively. A lower rates of depression and of high blood pressure. 3.9% decrease in pulse rate. Systolic blood pressure was lower (1.9% decrease). Diastolic blood pressure was lower (2.1% decrease). good reported health and high subjective wellbeing lower concentrations of cortisol, lower pulse rate, lower blood pressure, greater parasympathetic nerve activity, and lower sympathetic nerve activity walking leads to improved psychological state, reduced state-anxiety and perceived stress
#forestbathing "forest bathing program significantly reduced pulse rate and significantly increased the score for vigor and decreased the scores for depression, fatigue, anxiety, and confusion. Urinary adrenaline after forest bathing showed a tendency toward decrease. Urinary dopamine after forest bathing was significantly lower than that after urban area walking, suggesting the relaxing effect of the forest bathing. Serum adiponectin after the forest bathing was significantly greater than that after urban area walking."

"immersion in the forest environment and conscious activation of the senses [58,59,60] (for an overview of example exercises carried out during forest bathing, see McEwan et al. ). Originally conceptualized as a form of preventative healthcare, forest bathing is now used as a targeted intervention for specific mental health issues and forms part of the national health service in Japan . Over the past two decades, considerable emerging evidence around the efficacy of forest bathing as a therapeutic practice has been developed, principally stemming from Japan and South Korea [62,63].
A systematic review and meta-analysis conducted by Kotera et al.  outlines the evidence in support of forest bathing as an effective mental health therapy, with regards to its capacity to alleviate short-term mood disturbance. Forest bathing could be a suitable therapy, given it is a relatively safe and gentle practice, carried out in a supportive environment. It has been recommended as effective in the treatment of anxiety , depression , and addiction , and has been studied as an intervention for inpatients experiencing affective and psychotic disorders . Miyazaki  additionally found support for forest bathing’s capacity to increase positive psychological resources, while improving the cardiovascular, immune, and respiratory systems.
Biophilia , the predominant theoretical framework used in the East, and Attention Restoration Theory [67,68] have been suggested as contributing to forest bathing’s therapeutic effects. " #wellbeing
" Forty-two articles that tested natural environments or stimuli against a suitable control, and included an objective measure of cognitive performance, had been published since July 2013. Articles were subjected to screening procedures and quality appraisal. Random effects meta-analyses were performed to calculate pooled effect sizes across 8 cognitive domains using data from 49 individual outcome measures. Results showed that working memory, cognitive flexibility, and to a less-reliable degree, attentional control, are improved after exposure to natural environments, with low to moderate effect sizes." #attentionrestorationtheory #forestbathing

"In 2015, there was a journal article published in the Ecosystem Services by Paul Sandifer, Ariana Sutton-Grier, and Bethney Ward. It offers the most comprehensive list of benefits from spending time outdoors.
These include: reduced stress, depression, dejection, anger, aggression, frustration, hostility, illness and sick leave, and increased self-esteem, psychological well-being, opportunities for reflection, creativity, etc"
"In one study, University of Michigan students were given a brief memory test, then divided into two groups. One group took a walk around an arboretum, and the other took a walk down a city street. When the participants returned and did the test again, those who had walked among trees did almost 20% percent better than they had first time. The people who had taken in city sights instead did not consistently improve." #biophelia
"A study published in 2010 evaluated the effect of forest bathing on immune function. For a group of Japanese adults, a three-day trip to the forest increased the number of white blood cells in their blood. These levels of white blood cells stayed elevated for more than 30 days after their adventure in the woods. " #health #wellness #preventionworks
"It's estimated that between 60-90% of doctor's visits in the US are stress related(3). ... the University of Sussex claims a nature walk reduces stress only by 42%" #mentalhealth #wellness
"experiencing nature. Strayer asserts, "Our brains aren’t tireless three-pound machines; they’re easily fatigued When we slow down, stop the busywork, and take in beautiful natural surroundings, not only do we feel restored, but our mental performance improves too." Strayer has demonstrated this concept with a group of Outward Bound participants, who performed 50 percent better on creative problem-solving tasks after three days of wilderness backpacking." #creative #wellness #wellbeing

"Yoshifumi Miyazaki noted that, of the 7 million years human beings and their direct ancestors have been alive, we have lived in nature for 99.99% of that time. Therefore, it’s a very small percentage of time we have lived in the urban environments that we have created!
We are really adapted to living in nature. So living in these artificial environments actually creates stress on our bodies. We are made to be in nature and our bodies and brains respond well to it." #naturalworld #scienceandenvironment #biodiversity #conservation
"The joy of engaging with nature is that it can lower stress, relieve anxiety, elevate your mood, enhance self-esteem, stimulate creativity and improve working memory." #forestbathing #wel #wellbeing #lifestylemedicine
"n the last few decades, we have discovered that as adults we have what is called *neuroplasticity*. This means we are not doomed to live with the consequences of the things that have happened to us, but actually have the deep ability to create new connections and "rewire" parts of our brains.
Here’s where it gets really interesting and FUN. ☀️
It takes over 400 repetitions to create a new synapse (connection) in the brain.
