The “healthy dose” of nature: A cautionary tale

An interesting research article that looks at the possible negative outcomes of the increasingly popular trend amongst health professionals to 'prescribe nature'.

This article suggests the need for caution in uncritically or universally prescribing "healthy doses of nature" across the population without first engaging with people's unique and relational embodied priorities. 

'Normalising certain modes or forms of nature engagement over others risks overlooking or even devaluing the multiplicity of ways to be well in nature, thereby hindering efforts to promote more inclusive forms of nature access and engagement that better accommodate social, cultural, and bodily diversity.'
