Insulated-glass windows, skylights and glass shower doors can help reduce your stress by letting nature come inside.
Researchers have found that connecting with nature can “significantly lower depression, less perceived stress and enhanced mental and physical well-being,” according to Dr. Andrew Weil. Dr. Weil says the results didn’t surprise him because an earlier Japanese study found that “forest bathing” - taking in forest scenery for as little as 20 minutes – reduced cortisol, the stress hormone, down to lower-than-average concentrations.
Time to head out to Yosemite. If you don’t have time to go there or to a nearby park every day, you can do the next best thing by bringing nature into your home with windows. Even more relaxing, bring nature into your bathroom with windows or skylights. Add a glass shower door so you don’t shut yourself off from the effect and aaaaaaaaaahhhhhh. Talk about relaxing.
