Biophilic Design, which is the use of nature or natural elements in our homes and offices, has a big influence on our health and well-being. Researchers continue to uncover the reasons why nature is the missing link when it comes to our optimal health. In our 24/7/365, always-on-call, technology-driven world, spending ample time in nature has become a luxury that not everyone feels they can afford.  

However, doctors are discovering just how detrimental this lack of nature has become to our emotional and physical health.
