If you’re feeling stressed, depressed, uninspired, or just plain tired, it might be time to head for the hills, literally.
“The British Columbia Effect” by Destination BC explores the positive effects spending time out in nature can have on one’s physical and psychological well-being.

This 5-minute short film follows Top Chef winner and restaurant owner Brooke Williamson as she seeks relief from her high-stress job in the British Columbian wilderness. She travels to Vancouver Island and finds peace and wonder in the stillness of the old-growth forests and rugged coastlines around Tofino.
