This activity is aimed at teens studying Key Stage 3 and upward. The video can also be used as a lesson by high school teachers and homeschooling families.
Spending quality time in nature is a proven way to look after your mental wellbeing. By slowing down, taking notice and paying attention we can get into a mindful headspace. Crating your own nature photography is an effective way for young people (and adults) to learn this technique.

I show you 6 common edible wild plants you can add to your diet which will boost your immune system and improve your health. I also suggest several ways to use these plants in food.
I look at cleavers, jack by the hedge, nettles, wood sorrel, dandelion and wild garlic. These are all common plants, often considered weeds, in the the UK. Wild foods are so good for our overall health and whilst we're foraging we are also outdoors getting exercise, fresh air and sunshine on our faces.
Woodland Classroom host courses in foraging, wellbeing in the woods, mindfulness in nature and bushcraft in North Wales. If you would like to know more, go to:
Note: Always have the permission of the landowner if you want to forage and ensure you have a good wildflower ID guide (or two) with you so you can make a a positive and safe identification of the plant.

I give you 9 techniques that you can do yourself to practise mindfulness whilst out enjoying a walk in nature.
In this video I take a walk through the Welsh countryside in summer. Some of the techniques here are best practised in warmer weather, but mindfulness in nature can be practised whatever time of year.

It shouldn't be hard to reconnect with nature. All we need to do is to start looking and listening. This video was made without planning, I just wanted to share what I had seen and heard with our audience to demonstrate how simple and accessible it is to reconnect with nature. Anyone can do it, everyone should do it. I encourage everyone to take time out of their busy lives to spend on their own, immersed in nature.
