#293 Take nature home

Your surroundings are important factors for health and well being, but few of us are in the position that we can look out a window to this kind of scenery every day.

Yet, a newly released study from John Hopkins University shows clearly that beautiful nature scenes, even if just on a photograph, have significant pain-reducing effect. The study was performed on cancer patients undergoing painful treatment, and showed that placing relaxing pictures of idyllic scenes and playing out relaxing nature sounds by a patient's bed was enough to reduce pain significantly for most patients.

Maybe bringing nature home, whether it be through pictures, movies, sounds or artwork can be part of a good pain preventive life-style:)
