A little dose of nature for your morning. 🌿
Can you get outside and look up into some treetops today? Or spend five minutes in the garden? We are very lucky here in the Illawarra to have so many beautiful walking trails, lookouts and deep forest right on our doorstep.
Did you know that trees release scents that actively reduce the production of stress hormones? Just being amongst trees calms us without even thinking about it!
They give us awe, wonder, perspective and therapy.
As we try and find a rhythm in this new way of being and living right now, try to remember to include a dose of nature, each day. It will do us all the world of good. 🌿🌿🌱🌱
Interested in knowing more about how AMAHZING trees are and how they help humans to feel good? (As well as a myriad of other ways they contribute to the biodiversity and eco-systems of the planet)?
