WELCOME

Do you come alive when you’re out in nature—relaxed, restored, inspired— then lose those good feelings when you get home? Now you can feel more of that peace and vitality in your daily life.

You are made to flourish with sunshine, greenery, birdsong, flowing water, the rustling of leaves in the breeze, the scent of ripening fruit. Your body and soul are intimately attuned to the cycles of sun and moon—days, nights, seasons.

BUT when your environment gives you flat walls, traffic noise, views of buildings, and bright light long after dark, you are starved for sensory nourishment.

The results? Numbness, boredom, anxiety, insomnia, fatigue, depression, illness.

It doesn’t have to be this way. You can keep the benefits of indoor living while reuniting with Mother Nature.

Everyday Nature is More Critical to Your Well-Being than You May Realize

Reunion with nature nourishes your body, mind, and soul. It fills your well, giving you more energy, clarity, and inner peace for everything you do: work, play, relationships, you name it.

A closer relationship with the natural world can:

LOWER YOUR STRESS LEVEL: It may not surprise you to learn that over 100 studies have shown that recreational activity in natural settings can relieve stress. But did you know that just sitting in a room with tree views after experiencing stress can lower blood pressure faster than sitting in a room with no view? That’s powerful!

IMPROVE YOUR MOOD AND YOUR HEALTH: People with views of nature in their workplace have been found to feel less frustrated, more patient, healthier, and more satisfied with their lives than workers with no outdoor views or views of other buildings. Who knew something as simple as a view could change your life?

MAKE YOU MORE FOCUSED, PRODUCTIVE, AND ACCURATE: Workers with natural lighting (sunlight) and natural ventilation (fresh air) show more focused attention, superior cognitive performance, and up to 16% greater productivity. More sunlight in retail spaces has been correlated with lowered absenteeism, errors, and defects—and a 40% increase in sales.

LET YOU SLEEP MORE DEEPLY, HAVE MORE ENERGY, AND ENJOY BETTER SEX: Being out of synch with the natural daily and yearly cycles of light and dark has been found to induce fatigue, depression, insomnia, digestive problems, poor coordination, loss of mental ability, and loss of sex drive and fertility.

What does this mean to you?

It means you can satisfy your hunger for a nourishing environment—without leaving home.
