Paint More Trees

Sometimes I think all of my abstracts are landscapes, and they all seem to involve trees. Sometimes the whole painting is a tree. Sometimes it is just the suggestion of movement of trees in the wind. But they are never far away. Now I know why.

A new study by Bin Jiang and colleagues, published in the May 2016 issue of Environment and Behavior, found that trees are linked to the reduction of psychological stress. Viewing nature can help people recover from stressful experiences. This doesn’t surprise me.

Perhaps it’s time to paint more trees.
