Nature plays a fundamental part in all of our lives. Trees in particular. We have all had profound relationships with trees. With anxiety running high, this is a great time to take a moment to contemplate our relationship with nature by reflecting on trees we have known and loved. Start an in depth conversation with your family member about a tree that is special to them. Maybe one they grew up with or one they currently enjoy. Talk about that tree’s attributes in detail. What do they like about it? Is it a provider of shade? Is it strong? Does it flower? Then ask them to contemplate whether they share any of the attributes of that tree. How are they a provider? How are they strong? How do they flower? By helping them to own these qualities they will experience a calming connection with the natural world. If they like they can follow up with a drawing of the tree which will serve as a metaphor enhancing this sense of well being for days to come.
