One cannot fail to notice that recently there's been a huge surge in the whole 'getting kids outdoors', the ethos of children enjoying childhood, being outside and getting involved in nature. I love it, I really do, so much so that I'm about to launch a blog purely about that, but I digress - Nature Seekers isn't about children, it's about adults.
With so many people telling us of all the benefits of children enjoying the great outdoors, I want to stop and make time to share all the ways that being outdoors, immersed in nature can benefit grown ups.
In this Nature Seekers series I'll be sharing photos, experiences and words of being outdoors, actively seeking time with nature - and I'd like you to join me if you are so inclined. This isn't going to be some mass-linky, this is going to be a small and focused series and I'd love for anyone who feels passionately about spending time outdoors or who is moved to try it, to get in touch to be featured here. Your photos, words, thoughts, experiences, memories - anything that involves you and nature.
This is purely a series about adults and nature, this isn't about time enjoyed with your child outdoors, this is time enjoyed just by you. It's a stepping back from a busy lifestyle, from time online and reconnecting with nature, clearing your mindspace and how that enhances your life.
Forests, countryside, mountains, beaches, parks, greenspaces, canals, rivers - there's so much to discover and enjoy.
This week I've been enjoying time alone at the beach. Sea air always seems to blow the cobwebs out, even on the stillest of days. Collecting shells and bits that caught my eye, taking an hour out from being a mother to just let nothingness in. It feels good not to be thinking about anything else than just what a beautiful place I'm stood.
If you'd like to join me and celebrate and explore nature, do please get in touch for a chat at firstname.lastname@example.org
