Taking at least 20 minutes out of your day to stroll or sit in a place that makes you feel in contact with nature will significantly lower your stress hormone levels. That’s the finding of a study that has established for the first time the most effective dose of an urban nature experience.
I was in the Yavapai Regional Medical Center for 2 days and a night this week. I passed out at home Tuesday. I am OK, it was not a stroke and my heart is good. It was anemia.
This is the view from my hospital room window on the 4th floor. You can see 2 cemeteries from there. Places for doctors to bury their mistakes 🙂
I was in cardiac rehab (click on the cardiac rehabilitation at YRMC west link to see details) at YRMC in Prescott for 36 sessions. It was tough, especially during the first half of the program. It helped me greatly. I am proud of this accomplishment, so I thought I’d share the diploma with my readers.
