How do I feel better by connecting with others, my community and nature?
When we have time to connect with other people, nature and our interests it can help us to feel better and improve our health.
Doing things we love, being creative, connecting with friends and people we don't know, being in green spaces and connecting with ideas, the arts, sciences, music, dancing and more has shown to have enormous benefits for us.
These activities help shift us into a 'being' mind rather than 'doing' mind, they reduce stress hormones, help us relax, focus, concentrate, get into a flow state, improve our sleep and are often fun, make us laugh, think, learn, play.
