Blessings, nature sure is the greatest healer, works for me every time! 🌳❤️" - Julie Arnold

"Walk through the woods tonight, and I can recommend meditation in a wet woodland! The smell of the woods is divine, the sound of the rain on the leaves is incredibly relaxing and the drips falling on you from the tree tops is completely invigorating.... Mother nature, I fxxxxxg love you!!! XXX" - Bob Byrne

"I am a treehugger and this keeps me well. 💚" - Linda Williams

"I recovered from a severe back issue by getting out in the forest earlier in the year. I could only walk 50m or so without having to stop, lay on the ground, get up and walk on, but in a few weeks I stopped using my staff, put bigger gaps between the rests and now I am back up to 5 or 6 miles without needing the staff, pain relief or rests. That contact with the ground, looking up at the sky (usually with two bemused GSDs looking down at me), and walking amongst the trees and on the heathland made all the difference." - Sean Gibbins

"I have fibro caused by cptsd... It is the most powerful self-management tool I have to utilise every single day ... Sometimes the hardest thing to drag myself out but I always feel so much more able to cope after an hour stomping talking to nature <3" - Sarah Holmes

I hope you have enjoyed reading a few inspirational quotes and looking at the pictures. Trees help us in so many ways, our lives are interlinked. Mental health and physical well being are so important. We may well not notice them day to day and it is very easy to take our health for granted but we soon know we when lose them.

Did you notice any particular words and phrases that people used? Here are some of them...

This is how powerful nature is! These are really important words and they are all achievable and available to all of us. These words are just a few of the gifts that Mother Nature has to offer us, if we are just willing to walk outside and meet her. 🌳❤️

These words are not just plucked out of the air, they have been spoken by people who have experienced the healing power of nature for themselves. If nature works for them then nature can work for you too! Best of all it is free. However if you feel you would like some guidance or company then get in touch. I offer one to one and group sessions in forest bathing.

Woodlands are essential for our wellbeing. Every time I walk out in the woods I can feel the strains and strains of the day just melting away. Their ever changing beauty never ceases to fill me with wonder.
