This happiness activity is as simple as it is powerful. It has been designed to re-connect us to the beauty of nature and our natural environment.
Choose an object from nature such as a butterfly, a bird, a tree or a house plant. Now relax and focus on this object like you have never seen it before.
Use your eyes to explore all aspects of its shape, form and beauty. E.g. if you’ve picked a plant, explore how the leaves move in the gentle breeze or notice how some stems may be smooth while others may be in the latter part of their life cycle.
Now consider the role of your chosen object and how it connects to everything around it in the natural world or home environment.
When ready, perform this observation for 3-5 mins or a time of your choice.
