When working from home, it can be really easy to stay in front of a screen all day and never venture outdoors. Creating a routine with regular breaks will help structure your working day, and have a positive impact on your wellbeing. Take time to stop and stare from your window or in your garden, and notice the sights and sounds of nature around you. From new leaves and buds that might be emerging, to wonderful bird song, it’s amazing what you can discover.
