2.TIME IN NATURE - WALKS, STROLLS, GARDEN MOMENTS, FOREST BATHING, ETC

So get out in nature: park, yard, forest, seaside, mountain…..sometime this week. Here is an article from The Guardian wellbeing section: https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2019/jun/08/forest-bathing-japanese-practice-in-west-wellbeing
