There is a growing body of evidence to show that spending time in nature is beneficial for mental and physical health. The NHS recognises mindfulness as one of the 5 steps to mental wellbeing

Katy Connell, mindfulness practitioner and Friday event host at the Stuart Low Trust, feels spending time being mindful within nature enhances the enjoyment of both. Spending time in nature observing it can help us develop our mindfulness and being mindful of nature can support out appreciation of our surroundings. 

These three videos provide an introduction to the benefits of mindfulness and connecting with nature and opportunities to engage in guided meditations with Katy.
