The Hopewood philosophy promotes vegetarianism, plenty of water and freshly prepared juices, food combining, regular exercise and relaxation. It also emphasises the power of fresh air and spending some time in our natural environment. Awaken your senses and step outside for some fresh clean air.
Your enthusiasm to spend time outside may be reduced during the cooler winter months. However, it’s important to get outside and enjoy nature – all year round!
To help increase your enthusiasm, here are some of our top tips to get you into nature this winter.
Try nature photography!
You will enjoy the fresh air and can visually enjoy nature by capturing it using your camera. This activity can also help reduce stress and increase mindfulness.
Organise a walk in nature!
Australia has an abundance of beautiful, tranquil and breathtaking spots where you can immerse yourself in nature – places where a walk will be good for your mind and body but perhaps their beauty will also feed your soul. Reap the benefits and boost your wellbeing by trying a bush walk this winter
Get together with friends outdoors
Good social relationships can help strengthen your overall health and wellbeing, and help you achieve greater enjoyment out of life. As life gets busier, it can be difficult to retain or build solid friendships. Make time to meet friends in nature this winter.
Have a picnic
Organising a healthy picnic outside during the hottest part of the day can increase your enjoyment of good vegetarian food, fresh air, while you also take in the natural beauty around you.
