Bringing Nature to Your Living Room During the Quarantine

Categories: Other

Is your self-quarantine getting you down? Got the missing-my-park-blues? We definitely understand! Being outdoors has amazing physical and mental health benefits which are hard to give up. This is why we are bringing neighborhood parks to YOU! Every day, for the remainder of the Stay At Home Order, we will be broadcasting live from Cincinnati Parks! Throw some headphones in and join us on Instagram or Facebook! You’ll get to experience spring blooms, babbling creeks, singing birds, and much more.

Research shows that just experiencing the visual aspects of nature can have a soothing effect, on your mood. According to Dr. Jason Strauss, director of geriatric psychiatry at Harvard-affiliated Cambridge Health Alliance, “Having something pleasant to focus on like trees and greenery helps distract your mind from negative thinking, so your thoughts become less filled with worry.”

You can stay home, stay safe, and enjoy the sights and sounds of nature, no matter the time of day! These broadcasts will remain on our Facebook page, for you to enjoy.
