Brant Secunda & Mark Allen - If you’ve got the wintertime blues, new research shows nature can heal your moods. The big idea: If you're depressed, stressed out, anxious, or fatigued, the cure might be right outside your door. New research from Holland shows that people who live near a park or wooded area experience less depression and anxiety. And a study from the UK found that a walk in the country reduced depression in 71% of participants. In this fascinating interview with Julie Ann, Shaman-Healer Brant Secunda and Triathlete Mark Allen share the emerging field known as Eco-Therapy, which offers new solutions for people suffering from wintertime blues, or depression and anxiety caused by workplace or personal stressors. More than that, Brant and Mark share how to cultivate “sustainable Soul Fitness” – in their Nautilus-Award-winning book, Fit Soul, Fit Body. Secunda spent 12 years living among the exceptionally healthy and happy Huichol people of Mexico, apprenticing with their legendary shaman. From them, he learned what scientists are just now confirming: that disconnection with our outer environment can make us sick - and connection with nature can heal us. Now he and Allen, a 6-time world Ironman champion, show others how to draw strength, focus, and energy from nature - and use their techniques to transform negative emotions that deplete health and energy.
