Tree Hugging
Tree hugging has been shown to have scientific validity ... the book 'Blinded by Science' by Matthew Silverstone verifies that scientifically trees can improve many health problems such as mental illness , ADHD , concentration levels , depression and headaches.
Hugging a tree is great , but you don't even have to touch the tree , just being near the tree has the same effect. It is the vibrational properties of trees and plants that give us the health benefits.
Studies show that children show significant psychological and physiological effects in terms of their health and well being when they interact with trees or plants. Children also function better cognitively and emotionally in 'green' environments and have more creative play.
Having a flower or vegetable garden helps children grow up close to nature.
It is free and easy to go and be near trees in parks or the countryside or for a walk in a forest and don't forget to say thank you to the tree or trees afterwards !
