Keep it simple!
Spending more time outdoors doesn't have to be complicated or time consuming. If the wilderness happens to be too far away - take your adventure to a local park or green space close to where you live!
Take advantage of allemansrätten, the Right to Public Access, to experience small adventures on your way home from work or school. Take a little detour and eat your dinner in a park or at a jetty by a lake. Discover your surroundings together with friends and family, and explore your area. Keep your mind open and curious, maybe just to see what it feels like to lay down in the grass and relax.
If you don't feel you have the time to get to the forest, then take the opportunity to see what happens just around the corner. Stop, take a step off the the path and explore the edges of the park. Maybe something exciting grows there? Perhaps you can spot an animal?
Research shows that only a little contact with nature is needed to help us wind down, even if it's just looking at trees through a window. So don't feel stressed about going somewhere far away to experience nature. It's already right here. You won't be disappointed.
