Our panel of mental health experts looks at the positive effects of connecting with nature. Studies show that being in nature reduces anger, fear, and stress, and increases pleasant feelings. Our affinity towards nature is genetic and deep rooted in evolution. 

This is a re-broadcast of The Point with psychiatrists Marc Whaley and Jonathan Schwartz, and social worker Anne Geagon. Mindy Todd hosts.

Mindy Todd is the host and producer of The Point on WCAI which examines critical issues for Cape Cod and the Islands. She brings more than 30 years of experience in radio and television to WCAI.
