This news is based on the following article: Cox D, Shanahan D, Hudson H, et al. Doses of nearby nature simultaneously associated with multiple health benefits. Int J Environ Res 2017; 14: 172. doi : 10.3390/ijerph14020172
Following the example of physical activity recommendations, minimum and optimum doses of contact with nearby nature could be established to improve public health. This analysis in a small urban population in southern England of the relations between the dose – described as frequency, duration and intensity of exposure – and several physical and mental health indicators is a first step in this direction.
