Build a better relationship with nature

Humans are part of the natural world – our minds and bodies work best when we are connected with nature. Try activities which help you engage with the five brilliant and important ways to make nature part of our lives.

When the University of Derby did some research, they came up with ways that people can build a better relationship with nature – a relationship that helps themselves and the planet. They suggest five ways to be closer to nature and improve wellbeing:

  1. Sensory contact with the natural world
  2. Finding an emotional bond with, and love for, nature
  3. Taking time to appreciate the beauty of nature
  4. Thinking about the meaning and signs of nature
  5. Showing compassion and care for nature
