Nature Makes You Nicer

I knew it!  I feel better when I’m outside.  I’m a nicer, kinder, better person when I’m outdoors.  I thought it was because I was “on vacation” if only for a few minutes or hours.  It turns out we’re all nicer when we are in “natural” surroundings.

Richard Ryan, a professor at the University of Rochester and co-author of the study, published in the journal Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin states,

I always knew it was great living in Wyoming with nature all around us!

About Jyl Duffy

I love being a REALTOR and Office Administrator for Johnson Home and Land. There's no place like home here in Wyoming. This is home even though I enjoyed living in Wisconsin, Minnesota and North Carolina previously. With my husband, Dave, when we're not busy working we enjoy our Christian activities and being out of doors fly fishing, camping, golfing or snow shoeing. Wyoming is the best place to be for our active outdoor lifestyle.

    I agree, being outside makes me nicer, but I’m a wimp in the winter. I’m dreaming of Spring and getting back in my garden!
