Monthly Self Care Tip

NURTURE WITH NATURE

*GREEN FINGERS: Gardening is a wonderful way to alleviate a busy mind by taking the focus off of ourselves and on to nature. Whether you have outdoor space or none at all, tending to plants encourages our minds to be less insular and focus on the task at hand. 

 *LET THE LIGHT IN: With more and more of us working from home, it’s easy to remain at our desks and computers through lunch breaks. Take time to make alternate lunch plans and reconnect with nature. Whether you have lunch by your window, in the park or on a bench with a friend – slow down and feel the natural light on your skin.

 *THE FIVE SENSES: Connecting with nature isn’t always simple when we feel stressed or anxious. Ground yourself in nature by engaging with the five senses. Look around you, what can you see, hear, taste, touch, smell? Exploring and embracing your senses will help you focus on the present and connect with the world around you.

 *INTO THE WILD: Although getting outside in any capacity is always beneficial, try and change up your Walking route to keep it from becoming repetitive. Explore different green spaces, whether it be a local park you’ve never been to or a National Walking trail you’ve always wanted to try!
