The Restorative Nature of Nature: Improving Consumer Decision Making

This study provides evidence that natural environments improve self-regulation abilities, translating into healthier food choices and fewer items ordered. Given statistics related to the overconsumption of food, this research holds public policy implications affecting millions of Americans and provides them with a self-regulation resource that is free, safe, and plentiful – nature.
