It’s been scientifically proven that getting outside has a profound effect on the brain. For businesswoman Elizabeth Kilvert, the great outdoors is her favourite place to go when she really needs to clear her mind.

“That’s what grounds me; that’s what gives me perspective, and that’s what helps me make sensible decisions as a business owner,” she told at a sponsored reception held by Nature Canada on Monday, in the Centre Block of Parliament Hill.

"I try and sneak outdoors as much as possible," she says.
