Reclaim your lunchbreak and recharge in nature this Mental Health Awareness Week 10-16 May 2021
Many of us have lost our connection with nature, spending most of our time indoors, at home, in an office or in a car. Sometimes even having lunchbreak seems luxurious – most of us bolt food down at our desks so as not to miss a minute of the working day. Could our health and wellbeing be suffering because we spend less time outdoors?
Research shows that time spent in nature can renew our attention spans when they are flagging after a hard day’s work or an extended period staring at a screen. Time spent in the natural world and particularly in sunlight triggers an increase in serotonin and there is scientific evidence that we feel calmer when we look at trees.
Try and use your lunchbreak to get outside this Mental Health Awareness Week, and why not enter our nature photography competition. Take a photo and post it on social media using the tag #LawCarecomp and #reclaimyourlunchbreak. Prize of £50 Amazon voucher to the winner, £25 to the runner up kindly donated by Cheeky Little Careers #reclaimyourlunchbreak #rechargeinnature
