Green is my favorite color

It’s very cold these days — the high yesterday was somewhere in the 20s and I’m distracting myself from the cold with seed catalogs.  Which is why this article in the Boston Globe about the effects of different landscapes on the brain caught my eye.

There’s a lot of research that suggests that lush, green, varied environments make us feel calm and help us to concentrate — and that barren city landscapes without greenery make us feel unfocused and lost.  I looked up some of the research mentioned in the article, and while I’m not completely convinced, the idea is compelling.
