Thriving with Nature
As part of our COVID-19 Survey we found that lots of people who were feeling stress because of the pandemic said going for a walk had helped them to cope day to day.
Recent months have shown a growing appreciation for nature among the public, and it’s now more important than ever for everyone to be able to enjoy the remarkable mental health benefits of connecting with nature.
The Mental Health Foundation and the WWF UK have joined forces to bring you a free resource ‘Thriving With Nature’. This guide is packed with inspiration and information that will help you connect with nature throughout the year. It features ways nature can help us, how we in turn can help nature, plus seasonal sensory activities to maximise the benefits we get from the nature on our doorstep – whatever the weather.
The guidebook aims to raise awareness and open conversations about mental health and our relationship with nature, recognising, as our study has shown, the increasingly important role that nature plays in supporting positive mental wellbeing.
