The Attraction to Nature - Biophila Effect

The Biophilia Effect
The Outdoor Fitness program is based on the core belief that nature is perhaps the most powerful source for personal health and fitness.  When you workout in the fresh air, you not only enhance your physical-mental-emotional condition, you also deepen the connection you have with the environment.  It’s easy to overlook, since most of us spend so much time indoors, but you and I, like all human beings, have a deep connection to the natural world. Instinctively you know this to be true. This connection to nature is what is called  the biophilia effect.

The Most Powerful Contributor to Your Health

Turns out Nature IS a healer.

 
That’s right. It’s called, biophilia. The “biophilia effect” is applied to this deep connection we humans have to nature. Semantically, it means "love of life” and the theory states that we are endowed with a genetic link to nature that has evolved from our early human ancestors whose existence and survival were synonymous with the natural environment.
