Every now and again, I learn a new word I never knew before. Today, I had to explore myself to find out if I'm a biophiliac. Are you?

You're a biophiliac if you have a deep need to  interact with your natural world, be it a walk in the woods, sitting in a  garden or just playing with your dog, simple for the joy of feeling good, according to Earth Day Network. Scientific studies show being of the 'biophiliac' mindset makes you happier and healthier.

Today is Earth Day by the way! So it's a good day to experiment with your biophiliacness.

Join me Sunday morning in Egg Harbor Township for a special Earth Week Color Run 5k! Details here.
