Strolling off sadness

Last week, The Morikami was featured in El Paso Times, (Texas) for the work it did with Florida Atlantic University’s School of Nursing. Together, the two institutions invited seniors who suffered from various levels of loneliness and depression to walk the Morikami’s Roji-En gardens. The participants’ depression was alleviated after the study on par with doing targeted art therapy for their illness.

I think it’s kind of easy to see that walking in beautiful surroundings, taking in nature and enjoying the company of others would make anyone feel better. Glad to know I’m backed up by measured scientific studies…
