Nurture with nature

"Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better."

Nature is essential to our lives – from the food on our plates, to the clothes we wear, from medicines to mental health benefits.

For centuries, writers, composers, painters and poets have appreciated nature and its ability to inspire awe and wonder, whilst philosophers, physicians, teachers and politicians have made regular reference to its healing and restorative qualities.

The UK Government's 25 Year Environment Plan states:

"Spending time in the natural environment... improves our mental health and feelings of wellbeing. It can reduce stress, fatigue, anxiety and depression." 

Our top tips

Grow something

Whether it's a veg patch or a houseplant, nurturing a plant is one of the best ways to feel connected to nature.

have lunch outside

Get your daily quota of vitamin D by eating your lunch outside. If possible try and find somewhere green, but if that's not possible don’t let it stop you.  

exercise outside

On those warmer days why not take your workout outside and listen to the sound of the birds while you move.

go for a walk

Such a simple one and it's free!  Walk to the shop rather than take the car, walk the kids to school or take the dog for an extra walk around the block.  It's much easier to fit in than you think.
