Psychology is the study of how human beings and animals sense, think, learn and know. Psychology is a science based on observations and theories. Modern psychology is the collecting of facts and turning them into psychological theories to explain people's behavior and sometimes to predict and influence their future behavior.

It refers to the all that is natural as well as social settings, built environments, learning environments, and informational environments. I have decided to examine the way living in a world with no forests or parks would affects Humans.

My family and I always would take walks in the forest. I was so captivated by the majestic forest. There was something that seemed to be magical about the forest when I was small.
