Self Healing - One Seed At A Time

Dear Friends:

chickadee perched on twig Results of a recent study indicate feeding birds and wildlife are beneficial not only to birds and wildlife but to those who feed them as well! Feeding wild birds and other wildlife may improve mental, and physical well-being.

Research has shown watching birds and wildlife can actually help reduce stress, lower blood pressure, and the activity helps us focus on something else in stead of your problems.

It is good for the psyche to see birds at bird feeders—seemingly to greet you when you come home at the end of a long day, and because feeders and birdbaths require attention, taking care of them gets you outside, allows you to enjoy the outdoors, to soak up a bit of sunshine, and get a little exercise, too.

Why, just listening to the birds’ songs is uplifting.

Bird feeding is a relatively inexpensive past time, that can be started at any time of the year.
