Show Notes

Spending time in nature, whether it’s on your trampoline in the backyard or along a rocky shoreline, may be the ultimate mindfulness practice. The slower pace, the open space, the feeling of connection all encourage creative and simple opportunities to practice mindfulness with the whole family.

In this week’s episode, Kelly and Kristi
explore nature’s effects on our physical and mental health:

  • Environmental awareness and activism as a mindfulness practice
  • Nature’s restoration power in the digital age
  • How open vistas connect to open minds and healthy vision
  • Using our senses on nature walks
  • Exploring how experiences in nature effect your mood
  • Creating a nature mandala
