In the past year, many of us have reconnected with nature as a way to maintain good mental wellbeing whilst dealing with the challenges and uncertainty of the pandemic. The Mental Health Foundation‘s research found that going for walks outside was one of the top coping mechanisms and that 45% of us reported that being out in nature and greenspace had been vital for mental health. 

Not only did we spend more time outside, but we also noticed nature more: whether we listened to bird song, or noticed the colours as seasons changed, it became apparent that many of us were rediscovering nature. 

This year’s theme for Mental Health Awareness Week (10-16th May 2021) is nature. Head to our Mental Health Awareness Week page for more information on how we’re celebrating this year’s event, including a photography competition and a green space map of BaNEs!

Time spent in nature can be fascinating, relaxing and therapeutic. Perhaps you have a garden or local park which you enjoy; maybe you have a beautiful view from your window, or you like listening to the sounds of nature. We can all experience nature in different ways.
Here are some ideas which you may enjoy.
