🌍Today is Global Wellness Day!🌍 We challenge you to spend time outside today. 🌳 Perhaps life on the farm during planting season means that you are outside already. So we challenge you to look past the machinery and the problem solving that comes in this season of life. Take a moment to allow the sun to kiss your face, deeply breathe in the outdoor air and allow the sounds of nature to sing a song to you. 🐦Maybe you are able to choose to take a few hours away from the realities of farm life and walk through a forest, a beautiful park or garden. 🌻Our relationship with nature – how much we notice, how we think about and appreciate our natural surroundings – is important in supporting good mental health.Spending time in nature not only makes you feel better emotionally, it contributes to your physical wellbeing, reducing blood pressure, heart rate, muscle tension, and the production of stress hormones.So...put down your phone and get to it. πŸ˜‰#GlobalWellnessDay #MagentaNature #nfmha #nationalfarmermentalhealthalliance #farmermentalhealth πŸ‘¨β€πŸŒΎπŸ‘©β€πŸŒΎ#agmentalhealth #ruralmentalhealth #ranchermentalhealthπŸ„ #agmentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #breakthestigma #mentalhealthmatters #farmermentalhealthmatters #ruralmentalhealthmatters #farmermentalhealth #ruralmentalhealth 🚜 ...
