Hello and a Happy Thursday to you all. This is a bit of a different post for me but its something I not only feel incredibly passionate about but its something that has helped me with my mental health and as it is mental health awareness week I thought it was the perfect time to talk about this 🙂
The wildlife trust are doing a 30 days wild challenge throughout the month of June. It’s basically a challenge to get you to reconnect with wildlife and wild places in your surrounding area whether it be going for a daily lunch time walk, planting wildflower seeds (which they provide in your welcome pack) building a bug hotel or a hedgehog highway its all about reconnecting with our wildlife and appreciating what we have. They send you a welcome pack with a wall chart of ideas, some stickers and some wildflower seeds 🙂
I will leave the sign up link below. I think this is a brilliant idea, I have found that being in nature has such a calming effect on me i love listening to the birds and insects seeing the trees and flowers sway in the breeze the smell of dew on the blades of grass the trickle of streams its just bliss!!
So I am going to be taking part in this throughout the month of June and would love for you guys to join me!! I will be posting everyday in June on my Instagram to update you all on what in the wild activity I have completed that day 😉 Follow me here: @_Natalie_church_
Some ideas I’ve had are to create a little wild flower section in my garden, build a bird bath,make a bug hotel,look into bird houses,make sure I put out bird feed, look into volunteering at my local park, go for a walk everyday at a different time of day, bird spotting, breakfast dinner and tea outside one meal a day for a week. There are so many ways you can get out in nature and help our little wild friends out!!
