I like to write. I like to be well. I like to be outdoors.
These three things are unified in this blog where I write about being outdoors, access to nature and the huge positive impacts these have on physical and mental wellbeing.
How tiny acorns can empower our thinking that we have great things within ourselves.
A reminder that your wellbeing and creativity benefit from time outdoors.

I wish I could take credit for the title but that must go to my friend Julie who coined it during lockdown.
I lost my dad a few weeks ago. It wasn’t exactly unexpected but it still came as a jolt in the end.
