The Power of Nature

If there’s one thing that works every time to calm fraying nerves and empty overflowing buckets it’s nature. A walk in a beautiful setting works wonders for most children, but in particular for highly sensitive children because they often have an affinity for nature.

Nature provides peace and quiet. It’s a haven for the senses – think of the sounds of the sea against the shore, the smell of pine trees during a walk through the forest, the fun of spotting deer and birds in the dunes. Or listening to birdsong. Or just watching the clouds.


Over to you: What natural settings do you have near you? Are your highly sensitive children revitalised by a stroll in nature?
