Spending Time in Nature

Spending Time in Nature

Nowadays, it can feel really easy to end up spending more and more time on your phone or laptop and therefore cooped up indoors. A lot of people find spending time in nature is a really important part of their self care routine. Some of them say it helps them to be mindful and appreciate life, others say it helps them see the bigger picture outside of their own head and thoughts and some simply find the fresh air helps them relax. It can include things like going for walks, spending time at your local park or beach, growing plants and much more. 

Going out in nature helps me to relax and clears my mind.  It gets me out of the busy city and away from people and noise for a few hours.  I also get a feeling of achievement when I've completed a set walk. 

There are many organisations which organise walks including the Ramblers Association in England, Wales and Scotland and WalkNI for Northern Ireland whether they are short, urban walks or longer walks in the countryside.  For some safety advice for first-time ramblers, please visit Ramblers website

In this video, Kim and Liv share how being outside and spending time in nature helps their wellbeing:
