This year Mental Health Awareness Week will focus on nature
 
There is increasing evidence that connecting with nature is good for our mental health. Over this last year many people have said how much getting out into nature has helped them. 
 
When we talk about connecting with nature it does not have to involve a big hike or a big vista. It means looking and listening to what is going on around us: listening to birdsong; tending a houseplant; touching the leaves of plants and the bark of trees; smelling the flowers; listening to the rain and wind. Evidence shows that even small connections with nature impact positively on our mood and wellbeing. 
 
The Mental Health Foundation have some great information on the week and what you can do to get involved. Here is the link - click here. 
 
During May Clare and I will be sharing a nature picture every day on twitter using the #ConnectWithNature and #NurturebyNature. 
 
It would be lovely to see any pictures of nature that have helped your mood and wellbeing. 
 
The Mental Health Foundation have also put together a Nature Journal to keep for the week - click here to give it a go. There is nothing to lose and quite a lot to gain.
