Alas, no time to blog in detail today, but very much wanted to share the idea of 'nature deficit disorder'. The national trust cites evidence revealing:

  • children learn more and behave better when lessons are conducted outdoors
  • symptoms of children diagnosed with ADHD improve when they are exposed to nature
  • children say their happiness depends more on having things to do outdoors more than owning technology.
  • For what it's worth, I broadly believe these claims. As corroborating evidence (just links really!...) there is a whole literature on 'green prescribing' and a while ago Jonah Lehrer, who will soon be speaking at the RSA, made a similar case in his article: Why the city hurts your brain.

    Nature deficit disorder...I love it! Come to think of it, I might even have it...
