Mindfulness -Contact in Nature

Today saw the final week of an eight week Mindfulness course, a course with a twist, we brought the class room outside. Actually into Whitby Park in Ellesmere Port, A lovely location with many different areas to explore and to be mindful in. There was a room we could use however I would say we were at least 80% outside in the cool air, but today the sun shone, birds sang and the various parts of nature became alive. Course feedback so far has all been positive, with increase in sleep, feeling calmer more in the moment, less stressed and a better awareness of nature on our doorstep. The course was organised through Mersey Forest, John Moores University and sponsored by 'The Big Lottery Fund'

Benefits Studies show that spending time in nature e,g. parks and forests, lowers stress and improves physical and mental wellbeing. Practising mindfulness can benefit concentration and adapt your perspectives on life. It has also been shown to reduce stress and wellbeing Two courses have been running at Whitby Park in Ellesmere Port. A great venue with different locations to practice the various techniques in a natural setting.. Being outside has definitely heightened our senses. I have noticed an improvement in my mindfulness practices and way I react in nature
