Why nature connection?
Regular mindful time in nature through practices like forest therapy and nature connection is a public health practice in some countries and promotes mental and physical health.
“Research is showing that the closer we get to nature, the happier we are, the more worthwhile life seems, and the more we are willing to take action to help our wildlife and the environment. “Richardson, M., & Butler, C.W. (2022). The nature connection handbook: A guide for increasing people’s connection with nature. United Kingdom
