A little nature can go a long way in helping us re-center and place value in our relationships.
In fact, research shows that exposure to nature can make us nicer to others by fostering our values that relate to building relationships and community. Is your toddler acting up again? Try putting her timeout chair near a window where she can observe nature as she waits. Are you having a hard time connecting with your teenager? Try replacing your weekly family movie with a family hike.
Our everyday actions matter! Take a walk outside, gaze out a window, or watch a short nature video as a family. Small, simple actions can lead to a change in our values which might just help us to be a little nicer to each other. Nature can recharge our feelings of community!
