Tree Hugging Has Officially Been Validated By Science

Treehugger. It's a term used as a slur against environmentalists but that they happily adopted. It's a way for a person to show that they care about trees. But according to scientists, hugging trees is worth a lot more than that.

Blinded By Science, a book published by Matthew Silverstone, proves that trees can actually impart positive health impacts on things like depression, concentration levels, stress, and some forms of mental illness. He also found that spending time near trees, as well as hugging them, also relieved headaches.

Numerous studies in children have shown significant psychological and physiological improvement in their health when they're involved with plants and trees. Some research showed that children function better in green environments and are more creative when in natural, green environments.

“Access to nature can significantly contribute to our mental capital and wellbeing," writes Silverstone in his book.

Silverstone demonstrates that it's more than being in a green space, but that vibrational properties of trees and plants are actually what gives us the net positive health impacts. An experiment showed that a glass of water treated with a 10Hz vibration is able to cause your blood's coagulation rates to change pretty much immediately. It's the same with trees. Trees have different vibrational patterns than you.

You'll rarely catch a highly respected person rolling their eyes at someone or gossiping behind someone else's back. Highly respected people treat others the way that they want to be treated.

The trick is in thinking before they speak. They have an ability to calculate the consequences of their actions as to control their reactions before their facial expressions or body language gets the better of them. They have great social skills and are great at resolving conflict before it escalates.

They communicate Assertively

Those who are highly respected have a deep understanding of others. They know that people often react to delivery instead of the content so they make sure that the delivery is assertive and doesn't hold strong emotions as to not provoke anyone.

You might think that a person can be respected just because they're really good at something but it turns out that competence and respect don't automatically come together.

Rather, competence needs to be shown with confidence while still not crossing the line into arrogance. A person earns the most respect when they're confident in their skills and abilities but don't use them to brag and boost their ego.

They Show Competence With Warmth

Highly respected people earn their competence with practice, hard work, and growth. Being smart enough or skilled enough and confident enough is also not enough to be highly respected.

Harvard psychologist Amy Cuddy found that competence is only the second most important trait for earning respect. The first is actually warmth. When you meet someone new, you intuitively as yourself "can I trust this person?" and "can I respect them?" Trust comes from being warm and kind while respect comes from being competent. To be highly respected you need both.

They Are Always Willing To Change
