Relax

Hey readers,

My word of the week is:

RELAX

I feel really relaxed this week, I think one of the reasons is because I have been embracing laziness, but in the good way 😉

What I am trying to get at is the fact that sometimes it is hard to relax when you feel like you constantly need to be doing something, otherwise you feel guilty. So, this week I have been trying to forget all about them messy thoughts in my head and just relax. Amazing the difference but, it could also be down to the fact it was a bank holiday, therefore less tired form doing the school run. I know strangely it is just one day but, one day less then five in my eyes.

I have enjoyed being outside surrounded by nature and snapping away, it is when I am at my happiest and been loving seeing all the different spring flowers blossoming, particularly the tulip.

Reasons to celebrate woods

Hey readers,

I love forests and they just beautiful scenic places to explore, especially with children. Let me tell you why…

Being around in a space just full of trees and walking around is magical. I find it so calming to see all the different trees that nature has produced.

Walking around is really good for the lungs, as it feels fresh and breathable.

Woodlands are a great place to escape form it all, it feels like you are in a different universe where other people are not around if that makes sense.

Taking kids to forest is  brilliant  in creating fun memories and what more they have a blast running freely around the trees.

They are free to explore, which makes it a fab way to get out and explore. You can take a picnic and even a natural sheet for a fun packed day out.

Walking is great for the soul where better than the tranquillity of woods.

Sometimes, you can find disregarded branches which is a suburb way to make dens and helps build teamwork if you do it with children. It is a great way of teaching children how to plan and listen to one another.

Woods often are found to have streams close by so it is easy to take advantage and have fun doing pooh sticks.

Of course you can go out in the rain with waterproofs and still have a brilliant time in the woods. You can find some cracking puddles and who doesn’t like playing with mud when they are little.

You can find all sorts of wildlife and going down to your woods a perfect opportunity to close to wildlife.

Finally, woods are suburb location to use for photography and capturing nature stunningly. It is also great location for fashion bloggers to use the natural setting to great a certain atmosphere within the photo.
