Looking after yourself, and nature

Looking after yourself and nature

WildNet - Matthew Roberts

In light of the coronavirus outbreak, maintaining a connection with the natural world is more important than ever to ensure we're taking good care of our health and wellbeing.

We know that people who spend time in nature are happier and healthier, but it can be difficult to know how to do this safely in the current climate. 

It's really important to stay active and exercise where you can. This can be as simple as doing morning yoga in your own back garden! Our nature reserves are remaining open which are excellent places to unwind and take in the fresh air away from crowds. Just a bit of time every day spent in nature can help relieve stress and improve mental wellbeing. 

Activities you can do

There are still lots of ways that you can help wildlife during this time. We've got some brilliant activity sheets to download. Let us know on social media if you use any!

Other ways you can support our work

Wildlife needs us and we need wildlife more than ever. Here are a few ways you can be part of nature’s recovery during this difficult time.
