Ways to nourish your relationship with Mother Earth | Wholesome Culture

Every year on June 5, we take a moment to put down our phones and put on our comfiest shoes because it’s World Environment Day! And this year’s theme is Time For Nature, which for us means paying extra attention to the things we take for granted like feeling wind in our hair, seeing sun rays shining through windows, and stargazing on a random weeknight. 

We know it can be harder to connect with nature as we’ve been advised to stay inside as much as possible, but luckily there are still so many ways to nourish our nature-loving souls. From starting an herb garden to taking a nap outside — here are 25  fun and simple ways to connect with Mother Earth and celebrate World Environment Day.
