Description

The simple, easy to understand Norwegian method for bringing nature into your home and office to help your health and mood. For millions of years, humans developed in natural environments, in close contact with sunlight, vegetation, water, and air. While we are biologically and physiologically similar to our Stone Age ancestors, most of us spend nearly all of our lives indoors, removed from the natural world. Studies have shown that spending time outdoors in or near nature delivers emotional, psychological, and physical benefits.

Jorn Viumdal is on a mission to bring a natural living environment back to the home and workplace. In Skogluft--which translates to" forest air"--he draws on data from the University of Environmental Research and Bioscience in Norway and three decades of NASA research to reveal how a carefully chosen selection of plants grown and placed in a specific way indoors can dramatically improve health, reduce fatigue, strengthen the immune system, and enhance concentration, communication, and vitality. Having these plants around us can help improve how our bodies feel and prevent disease, make us happier and calmer, and increase our efficiency and productivity.

Skogluft teaches you how to transform any wall in a home or office into a living wall to help remove toxins from the air, reduce stress, and strengthen the immune system. Viumdal explains which plants improve overall health and release different gases for optimal well-being. All the vegetation can be found in local nurseries or stores and online.

Following Viumdal's method, you will feel better, have more energy, and lift your spirits as you add natural beauty into your world.
