How Do You Connect With Nature?

Spend time in nature. It has been revealed in scientific studies thay solitary activities like spending time in nature, fishing, or exploring outside are key to building strong bonds between people and nature. 

Nature connection is all about getting outside to explore a natural setting with your own basic sensory awareness & observation skills. In a technology-driven world, most people are only using a very small portion of their total capacity to sense and perceive what’s happening in their surroundings. 

In addition to developing your connection, you should endeavor to utilize herbs and adopt an herbal self-care practice for all-around health and wellness.
