Over the last weeks, many of us have experienced stress, anxiety or isolation. But now that we can get back outdoors, we celebrate the positive impacts of nature on our well-being for Mental Health Awareness Week.

Most of us are spending much more time at home and we're noticing the incredible benefits of the outdoors and the joys of species right here on our doorstep! 

There are lots of things we can do to help support good mental health. Here are some tips to connect with nature.

What things have you been doing to help combat any stress, anxiety or isolation?

I find mindfulness to be particularly Helpful. The whole essence of being in the now is great for those feeling any type of anxiety or stress. Take an orange or anything you want that is substantial, start with fruit i would advse. touch it, Sniff it, look at it, focus at it, Can you feel your sense locked into just that? That is mindfulness
