Look after yourself ... and nature

Looking after yourself ... and nature

In light of the coronavirus outbreak, maintaining a connection with the natural world is more important than ever to ensure we're taking good care of our health and wellbeing.

We know that people who spend time in nature are happier and healthier, but it can be difficult to know how to do this safely in the current climate. 

It's really important to stay active and exercise where you can. Just a bit of time every day spent in nature can help relieve stress and improve mental wellbeing. If you do want to visit a nature reserve, only head to those close by and always make sure you follow Government guidance on social distancing

Here are some other tips and resources that we hope will help you in the coming weeks.

Discover your local nature reserve

Nature reserves are wonderful places to experience wildlife and soothe your soul - from woodland walks, to following animal tracks, or watching wading birds.

Things to make and do

There are still lots of ways that you can help wildlife during this time. We've got some brilliant activity sheets to download. If you do try any of these, please share with us on social media using #everydaywildlife. We'd love to see!

All of these activities are perfect for families to do together.
