Try to spend lots of time in nature.
It may sound simple or obvious but spending time in the natural environment can really help a great deal. For people experiencing psychological distress, focusing on the calmness of nature can give a sense of grounding and relief from the confusion happening in the mind.
Perhaps there is something in the following list that you can do –
- Do some gardening (or even offer to help in a neighbour’s garden) – plant some flowers in a window box or indoors; grow some veggies
- Go for a walk in the woods
- Get involved with a group that works out in nature or helps clean up the local environment. This can be a great way to meet other people and make friends too.
- Allow yourself to get dirty – Having fun and getting in touch with the earth can be healing.
