How to Protect Against Nature-Deficit Disorder

With today’s use of technology, it can be easy to forget to go outside, but studies show that making this a habit can be bad for your health, especially for kids. In this interview with Richard Louv, author of the book, "Vitamin N: 500 Ways to Enrich the Health & Happiness of You Family & Community," Louv talks about the upsides of getting outside. Spending time in nature can result in a host of benefits, such as improved use of senses, greater ability to focus, better physical and emotional health — plus, caring about it is good for the planet’s future. Going outside doesn’t cost anything, and is actually enjoyable to experience. While it sounds like a no-brainer, it still can be difficult to implement, which is why it’s important to put it in your calendar. Better to schedule a visit with the local park than the family physician.
