When was the last time you truly noticed nature?
Like truly noticed nature. To stop and drink in your surroundings. To be aware of the sounds, the sights and the feel of the breeze.
Tuning into nature can really help us slow down and take stock. It can help us feel liberated, inspired and relaxed.
So why don’t we embrace nature more often?
After all, our little country is full of hidden beauty spots waiting to be explored, it’s just about taking time to stop and smell the roses.
Well the Green Walking Group has this approach in mind. Devised by Wellbeing Practitioner Sylvie, this group encourages participants to reconnect with nature through gentle walks, mindfulness and meditation.
Benefits of the Green Walking Group include:
- Increases your energy level
- Improve cardiovascular fitness
- Reduces stress and anxiety
- Discover new places
- Lowers blood pressure
- Improves sleep
- Improves mood
Sylvie said: “The green walking group is a great way to slow down and take notice of the beautiful green spaces we have in Liverpool. So far we have noticed so many new things in
our local parks, from trees with interesting faces to horse burial sites!
“Seeing these well-trodden walks through other people’s eyes has highlighted how differently we see things. We have also practiced some mindfulness in our walks, and found that we notice so much more after pausing to take in the sounds, sights and textures around us. It’s an opportunity to connect with others and nature, it always leaves me feeling very relaxed and mindful!”
So far the Green Walking Group have been to Calderstones Park and Sefton Park with Princes Park next in line on the 24th of May.
