NBC News recently had a story on ecotherapy, where a doctor prescribed taking a walk in nature instead of pills to deal with some cases of anxiety and depression. Ecotherapy combines nature walks with therapy sessions and simple exercises. Patients are instructed to focus on three key elements:
   - The sounds of chirping birds
   - The visuals of trees and leaves
   - The sound of streams or rivers
Hatcher Garden has all these things! Come take a walk in Hatcher Garden especailly in these stressful holidays! To see more information on the NBC News story, click here.
