Workshop with Dr. Amanda Wetegrove-Romine About this event Research confirms that spending time in green spaces improves how our brains respond to stress. Exploring the outdoors has been linked to lower rates of depression and anxiety. A walk in nature can also improve memory and decrease worry. This workshop is designed to share this information and help participants develop their own plan for getting outdoors regularly. Guided walking mindfulness can be included for an immersive experience.
