This video is probably the most influential advertisement we’ve ever watched.
The masterminds over at Nature RX created the video with a very simple goal in mind: to spread awareness about what being out in nature does for your body, mind and soul.
Side effects may include confidence, authenticity, remembering you have a body, and being in a good mood for no apparent reason.
It’s a humorous and brilliant take on those pharmaceutical commercials and the horrible side effects that accompany the drugs.
“CAUTION: Nature may cause you to slow down, quit your job, or seriously consider what the fuck you’re doing with your life.”
According to a 2009 study published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health, the closer you live in proximity to nature, the healthier you’re likely to be. Spending more time in nature will also improve your well-being and hopefully lead you to make positive environmental decisions.
If you ask us, nature is certainly the greatest drug you can ever take. And we definitely wouldn’t mind any of those side effects.
So, what are you waiting for? Get outside!
