Nearby Nature Project: 2022 January

In 2022, I'm relaunching a monthly feature: Nearby Nature Project. Articles will focus on nearby nature, such as planter pots, gardens, yards, neighbourhood and nearby parks/trails. Each story will include at least one link to an interesting article or research study, YouTube, podcast, nature-related app, book, course or other materials. And I'll share a nearby nature subject that caught my attention over the past month.

Give Thanks

Canada celebrates Thanksgiving in October, but when you hold an "attitude of gratitude" it's easy to give thanks any time of year. And yet, it's not always easy maintaining an attitude of gratitude, especially during these COVID times. There's a lot of information out there on why and how to keep an attitude of gratitude. One tool that works well for me is daily journaling.
