Mental Health Awareness Week

Hosted by the Mental Health Foundation, 10th - 16th May is Mental Health Awareness Week. This year's theme is connecting with nature. Whether it's listening to the birds singing or noticing the flowers blossom after a long winter, over lockdown many of us have come to understand our human need to connect with and appreciate the world around us.

Endless studies show that spending time with nature can improve your mood, your physical health and reduce feelings of stress or anger. Having something pleasant to focus on, like trees and greenery, ultimately helps distract your mind from negative thinking.

Check out these tips for finding nature wherever you are: http://ow.ly/DjMv50EG5rk
