Bringing Nature In
Creating a Space for Nature
If it's not possible for you to get outside very often at the moment there are lots of simple ways to bring nature into your home. One option for this month is to bring some of natures treasure inside and create a small area within the home, perhaps a windowsill or corner of a table, and create a space for nature. The objects you bring in may help you to stay connected to the changes occurring in the natural environment happening now....changes in colour, texture, light and even scent.
Whenever you can change your natural objects around for new ones found, in particular ones that will remind you of some of the positive experiences you have had whilst being on your walk. By creating a space for nature in your home you can be connected to the seasonal changes taking place whatever the weather.
As an extension to this activity you could even photograph your space for nature each time you change it and keep a journal of your walks through the season...
