(Time in) Nature beats Nurture

The results of our first ever survey are in. We asked for your favorite ways to destress, something that has only become more important in light of new findings which also tie stress to added risk of dementia (see goo.gl/LEQjrn ). The winner? Spending time in nature, something that also can work for people at any budget in almost all living situations. Exercise was a close second, while listening to music tied with the catch-all Other where suggestions included talking to a friend, shopping, acupuncture (blushing) or having a glass of wine (see Friday's post: that's good for you too). Dead-last? Getting a massage. Thanks to all for participating and sharing what works for you.
