YES your Entire Self
During October 2018 Scotland officially added ‘nature prescriptions’ by Doctors in the Scottish Islands.
During October 2019 Scotland officially became a Mindful Nation, confirmed by Holyrood.
During October 2020 YES merged both. Nature offers increased clarity/vitality with an improved immune system. Mindful living offers improved focus, relationships and self awareness with reduced anxiety and critical thinking.
During 2021 Covid has shown capacity for our society and economy to change. If we are committed to ‘building back better’ and a ‘new normal’, an increased connection to the Self and to Nature will empower us towards positive change for all. It is a beneficial recovery that recognises the mental and physical benefits of spending time in nature, particularly highlighted by Covid. This is our opportunity to make nature friendly individuals, families, organisations and environments the norm, not the exception.
