001: Nurture Yourself In Nature with Gerdi Verwoert

Self-care is often completely overlooked by those that care for others. For those that work in high-stress environments, it’s crucial that you consciously take care of your physical, mental and emotional health. 

Practising self-care leads to an improved mood, physical health, mental health and better performance. Another benefit is that it also fuels good relationships with others. One of the best ways we can improve our self-care is to connect more with nature whenever possible.  

In this episode, Gerdi Verwoert shares some practical tips on stepping into nature and how doing so contributes immensely to one’s well-being.

  • What you can gain by reading books about nature (17:09)
