Our contributors share their wellbeing rituals and favourite nature spots…

Daisy Finer

What are you doing for your mind, body and soul? Breathing, calling friends, lighting candles, gathering goodness.

Where do you go to escape the rat race? I live in the countryside and am freelance, so I’m not really in the rat race. I opted out a while back.

What nature spot do you always return to? I walk every day in the comfort of nature. It’s always there for us, and I am lucky – I have amazing walks from my doorstep.

What can we all do to help save the planet? An important thing we can all do is eat less meat.

Jane Dunford

What are you doing for your mind, body and soul? I’m trying to stay calm and positive by practising yoga, meditation and breathwork – there are brilliant online classes out there.

Where do you go to escape the rat race? Anywhere that offers sea, mountains or plenty of trees. I love the simplicity of a cabin in the woods.

What nature spot do you always return to? I always walk along the White Cliffs of Dover, near St Margaret’s Bay, where my grandparents had a farm.

What can we all do to help save the planet? Planting trees is important, but we must all be more aware of the impact our lifestyles have on the earth and work to reduce our individual footprints.

Rebecca Cox

What are you doing for your mind, body and soul? I’ll be keeping myself and my son healthy with good food, lots of yoga and play, and finding the positives in slow living.

Where do you go to escape the rat race? The beach is my happy place. My favourite would be a quiet Cornish cove with a pasty.

What nature spot do you always return to? There’s a spot where I stop to stretch on my 5km run along the Thames Path. It’s so peaceful at twilight.

What can we all do to help save the planet? Shop local, buy less, buy better and stop throwing so much away.

Amy Wakeham

What are you doing for your mind, body and soul? I’m spending as much time outside as possible, with a long run, walk or bike ride each day.

Where do you go to escape the rat race? I head to my family’s farm on the wild north coast of Cornwall, to feel wind on my face and sand in my toes.

What nature spot do you always return to? In London, I take advantage of our many parks and green spaces. In Cornwall, I have the best beaches in the country on my doorstep.

What can we all do to help save the planet? Support British farmers. Buy local, seasonal meat, fruit and veg. Ditch the plastic.
