30 Days Wild 2016

*BananaMonkey**BananaMonkey* Lyrical PosterPosts: 5,367 Part of The Furniture



Hey everyone :wave:

Do you enjoy being outside, and nature? If you answered yes, the wildlife trust have the perfect challenge for you :thumb:

They are encouraging people to make nature part of their life everyday throughout the month of June. When you do something to do with nature use the hashtags #30DaysWild to share what you have seen and inspire others.

Here are some ideas to get you started.

- Creating artwork in the wild

- Look up at the clouds, what can you see?

- Get crafty in the sunshine

- De- stress naturally

- Switch of your electronics and go outside

To get started you can sign up, The Wildlife Trusts You don't have to sign up, but they have some brilliant ideas that could inspire you.

You can also use the hashtags #30DaysWild to share what you have done and to inspire others :heart:

Being outside, and nature can have a positive impact on our mental health and also our physical health, so this could be good if your looking for something new to try and just want to be outside more.

We can use this thread to share what we have done with others. I am going to try and remember to post back everyday and keep this thread going for the whole of June

It would be cool to get others involved :thumb:



Sharing is caring :heart:





" And everywhere I am, there you'll be, your love made me make it through, oh I owe so much to you "
" So I say thank you for the music, the songs I'm singing, thanks for all the joy they're bringing, who can live without it, I ask in all honestly what would life be? Without a song or a dance, what are we? So I say thank you for the music, for giving it to me "
'' It's a beautiful day and I can't stop myself from smiling "

    I still haven't started this. I've been outside so could have but how on earth do you remember something like this?

    I sometimes forget to write it on the boards. It could be something simple like making a daisy chain. Noticing different flowers. You can do this.

    Sitting in a park at lunch (albeit very busy) enjoying the sunshine and feeling of grass prickling my legs.

    lots of walks, listening to birds in the last few days and then today walking along a beach enjoying the complete silence and smelling the pine trees in the forest :)

    Yesterday was a lovely walk through the park surrounded by nature sounds and also the geese and ducks

    How are you wild people getting on? I had a walk in my local nature reserve yesterday and I'm starting to learn the names of all the wildflowers - there is one called 'Herb Robert' which I just think is such a random funny name.

    It's actually a really mindful activity to be outside and to slow down and notice the small things, I think that's why I enjoy it :)

    I loved the idea of counting the flowers @*BananaMonkey*[/USER] and speaking of daises, check out my garden [USER="44074"]plugitin - daisy jungle! Heaven :d:d

    Would love to see some more photos of people's encounters with nature :)
