If you’re having a stressful week, nature can be soothing. Try one of these to help you handle ‘hump day’.
Admire a View
Looking at green (and blue) spaces is relaxing, and has health benefits as an added bonus. Find your nearest green space, or flick through nature photographs on your phone.
If you don’t get a chance to get out for lunch, stop to appreciate the sunset on your way home.
Make Friends With an Animal
Research shows that stroking an animal can be soothing. Make friends with a local cat or dog and spend time stroking them. You’ll both feel better for it.
Volunteering is a great way to take your mind off your own anxieties. Spending time litter picking is an easy way to help wildlife – and if you add the word LOVE crafted with nature finds, you’ll remind other people to love the world.
