From wild-picking to bird watching, from gardening to forest bathing: in this book ‘urban treehugger’ Eline Van Lancker unravels the mental health benefits of the latest outdoor hypes. Not as a vague pseudo therapy, but based on scientific facts and with a strong dose of humor and (self-) relativation. Each chapter ends with a practical guide to getting started – even if you’re not blessed with green fingers or wilderness within walking distance. Full of beautiful illustrations, fun facts and practical tips, ‘The Green Happiness’ is the perfect gift for anyone who wants to live closer to nature, from urban nitwits to seasoned outdoorsy people.
