Nature Deficit Disorder and Technology Addiction

Too little time in nature causes us to become irritable, frustrated, and less able to cope with stress. Even in small doses, exposure to nature can measurably improve our psychological and physical health.

“The more high-tech our lives become, the more nature we need.” Source : Richard Louv, author of ‘Last Child in the Wood’s, ‘The Nature Principle’,and “Get Your Mind Dirty”.

This post was inspired by Tonya’s ‘back packing kids’ blog at this link where she writes about technology addiction in adults and children.   A good, honest, down to earth, not lengthy read.
