NUR­TURED BY NA­TURE

Dorset - - WHOLE SELF AT MAPPERTON -

The cur­rent global health cri­sis has forced us all to spend a great deal more time in­doors. This in turn has made us ap­pre­ci­ate the great out­doors when we do get the op­por­tu­nity. Get­ting out into na­ture can do won­ders for our men­tal health and hap­pi­ness. It’s some­thing we’ve all been en­cour­aged to do daily for our well­be­ing since lock­down started.

If you’ve been work­ing from home, home­school­ing your chil­dren or try­ing to jug­gle both - then you’ll need to take a breather to recharge your bat­ter­ies dur­ing the work­ing day. Go­ing for a solo walk or find­ing an outside space for a peace­ful seated med­i­ta­tion mo­ment is a plea­sur­able way to clear your mind and de­stress.

Mak­ing sure you get outside ev­ery day, even if just for a short walk or a few deep breaths of fresh air, will help to keep you grounded. If you don’t have your own out­door space, then head to your near­est park or open area to soak up some quiet time in na­ture. It will do you a world of good!
