Naughty connect

I’m caustiously optimistic about my ‘Boys’ this week.

Because of the hidden benefits of connecting with nature, people should take advantage of opportunities to get away from built environments and, when inside, they should surround themselves with plants, natural objects, and images of the natural world.In addition, write the authors, the richness and complexity of natural environments may encourage introspection and the lack of man-made structures provide a safe haven from the man-made pressures of society."Nature in a way strips away the artifices of society that alienate us from one another," says Przybylski.Why should nature make us more charitable and concerned about others?One answer, says coauthor Andrew Przybylski, is that nature helps to connect people to their authentic selves.

By contrast, "to the extent that our links with nature are disrupted, we may also lose some connection with each other," the authors warn.
