What are the benefits?

Spending time in nature has numerous benefits for health and wellbeing. Studies show that connecting with nature has benefits for your heart, breathing, immune system and can decrease symptoms of many illnesses. It’s good for sleep too. Nature-connection improves mental wellbeing – through increased happiness, but it also improves the wellbeing that comes with self-acceptance, personal growth and finding meaning and purpose in life.

However, to feel the maximum benefit you need to pause, observe, listen and learn from what the living world is telling you. Think about this in terms of moments spent creating relationships with other living beings, not simply minutes spend in the outdoors. Noticing nature (beyond simply being outdoors) has been proven for wellbeing and this workbook will guide you through simple exercises that will leave you feeling relaxed and revitalized, helping to decrease the stresses of everyday life.

Exercises are practical, thoughtful, creative and mindful, offering a wide range of benefits, that everyone can enjoy every day.

What are the natural principles referred to in this book?

  • finding purpose
  • growth and success
  • building resilience

Because we are part of the living world, we can learn from these natural principles and you’ll discover how throughout the book.
