10-Minutes Outside Can Heal An Online Nation

Technology is everywhere these days. Research shows that when we give the bleepin' gadgets a break and just add nature, we grow healthier, happier, brighter, calmer and closer.

Watch, like and share our video for a quick fix of laughter and green time.  Behind the humour is medical and scientific research based on Planet Ark's new report, Adding Trees - A Prescription for Health, Happiness and Fulfillment, sponsored by Toyota Australia.

And remember to join us for a dose of nature on Schools Tree Day (Friday 29 July) or National Tree Day (Sunday 31 July).
