That's because nature heals.
“The studies are clear about the benefits of being in natural settings, with practices like forest bathing, earthing, green spaces and being outside," said Dr. Steve Koc, creator.
"From a healing perspective, the benefits of exposure to nature are pretty much the same as the benefits from laughter itself: stimulation of the immune system, reduction of stress, and relaxation of the muscles.”
Gnomies World brings real-life, non-commercialized, actual nature to the big screen. It was filmed on 12 private acres in the Oregon forests south of Portland.
“I spent a lot of times outdoors,” said Koc. “I spent hours wandering amongst the trees, moss and mud with a camera.”
Reviewing the footage, Koc was surprised to see unexpected nature show up: “Out of nowhere, a frog jumped onto one of the Gnomie’s heads, and a curious hummingbird dropped by. A bumblebee showed up unexpectedly. Nature is always interacting with us in wonderful ways.”
