Mental Health Awareness Week: Food and mood are linked in subtle, important ways. Natural foods contain nutrients that are good for our mental wellbeing and introducing them into our diet can help us feel more connected with the cycles of nature.
Mental Health Awareness Week: Whilst spending time in any green space will help your wellbeing, you could go one further and take a walk in some wild places where you can observe a variety of natural eco-systems. Go for a long Mindful Walk in a nature reserve or a natural forest and stop for at least 10 minutes to have a look around you. Check out this Mindful walking activity sheet. tinyurl.com/bj7ce7fb
Mental Health Awareness Week: Another great way to feel connected to the cycles of nature is growing herbs or vegetables. Follow the process of growth from a seed into a plant and harvest it when it's ready. You'll learn the art of patience and get to taste real food you nurtured yourself.
