Lightbulb Study: Connecting with Nature Boosts Mental Health and Well-Being

Over the past ten years, we’ve seen a significant swell in the number of men and women who have seen active duty battle. The immortal boogieman, the “War on Terror”, has sent thousands off to war and brought many back physically, mentally, and emotionally damaged.
