EcoTherapy is the practice of spending time outdoors, connecting with nature.  This practice can help relax the body, decreasing blood pressure and post-operative recovery time, improving self-esteem and even lessening depression.  Ecotherapy has also been shown to decrease the production of stress hormones and improve the mood following stressful events.  This restorative practice brings balance and calm and provides a space for us to spiritually connect with ourselves and with something greater than ourselves.

Walking, or other outdoor exercise, gardening, or playing with animals are simple ways to spend time outdoors.  Caring for potted plants, having an indoor garden and including natural lighting are simple ways to bring nature indoors and also helps create a healing environment.
