  • Anna,

    I found your post very interesting. Specifically when you said “With our population growing and our demands for food, water, shelter, and energy along with it, we need to ensure that our natural resources are protected.” I agree that our government needs to make a change in order to help conserve our natural resources. You bring up many g…Read More

    Brenda,

    I found your post very interesting. Specifically when you said “This is the reason why I’m saying that people should accept everybody so people like Ashely won’t feel scared of being outside and be secure of who she is. Another example is that all of the immigrants that Hispanics right now are confused and worried because they don’t know…Read More

    • Erica, I have never really thought to hard about how geography impacts peoples personality so i found this article really interesting. I am interested in seeing how this is changing as the world develops and people move around more and more, especially ecologicially. I am excited to see where you go with this!

    • Hello Erica! I thought it was really interesting when you brought up “features of the physical environment affect people’s thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.” I never considered that this could shape someone, but I am not surprised that someone’s surroundings could impact the way people behave. I found in this source something like you were talking about, “psychogeography practice involves drifting around cities, an act in which one must ‘drop their usual motives for movement and action … and let themselves be drawn by the attractions of the terrain and the encounter they find there.” Here is another article that could help you with your paper. (http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/sundayextra/how-our-surroundings-affect-the-way-we-think-and-feel/6758818) I thought this was also interesting since it talks about how urban areas can be impactful too on peoples lifestyle prefrences. I would like to know if you come to a conclusion with the question, “Does living in an unhealthy environment contribute to feelings of stress and anxiety, or vice versa?” I am interested to see you do more with this topic. Bye.

    • Erica,
      This is a truly fascinating post, and I have never really thought about how much of an impact geography has on one’s personality. I agree that it is important to continue to study the effects it has on people, for if we can understand it more then we can help more people who are in unhealthy situations due to the impact their environment is having on their mental health. Here is an article that I think you would find interesting: https://www.takingcharge.csh.umn.edu/explore-healing-practices/healing-environment/what-impact-does-environment-have-us
