Connection can relate to anything from having a relationship with others or ourselves to our relationship with food or the environment we live in. Connecting to our environment can have a massive positive impact on our mental health and wellbeing. 

Our environment can be anything from our bedrooms to a nature park. Connecting to our environment allows us to feel comfortable in our surroundings and allows us to get to know ourselves better.   

Connecting with our surroundings can be anything from… 

  • Getting outside of our comfort zone 
  • Doing an activity we enjoy in a place we feel most comfortable 
  • Making it our own 
  • Allowing for time to spend in our surroundings

Connecting with the environment around us allows for us to create a safe space to relax and feel secure. It creates a space that can help reduce anxiety, stress and increase our energy levels overall and so much more.

Overall, it can take time to be able to connect with our surroundings. Not everything will work for you so try new things to get what is right for you. It’s also ok to realise that connecting with our environment may not work for you. It’s all about finding what is.
