Learning and Mindset with Nature

It’s important to teach children the value of nature and practicing mindset in nature, but it can be hard to find ways to make that happen if you don’t live around a lot of nature. Below are some tips for getting kids outside and connecting with nature. 

認識到大自然的寶貴對孩子的成長很重要。雖然置身大自然去做心態修養聽起來很令人響往,可是對於居住在城市的人來說可能有點困難。要是你也面對這種情況,以下是一些可以讓孩子多在戶外、親近大自然的方法。

Explore Your Local Neighbourhood
探索居所附近

If your child is really young, take them for walks around your neighbourhood. You can point out trees, flowers, birds and other wildlife as you go along. Even if you don’t live near parks or any green space, you can make use of what you have. Ask your child how these discoveries make them feel. Dig deep into their feelings and see which elements make them feel the most calm. 

要是孩子年紀還很小,那麼就從居所的附近開始探索吧。引導孩子留心沿途的一草一木,小鳥、昆蟲等。即使居所附近沒有公園或其他綠化空間,也可以有甚麼就看甚麼。問孩子對這些一個個的新發現有些甚麼感受。盡量深入去認識他的感受,看甚麼東西最能令他感到心境平和、舒泰。

Make it Fun
加入趣味元素

If your child is older and more adventurous, try taking them on hikes in natural areas close by (or even further out). Pack a picnic lunch, so you can take advantage of the beautiful surroundings and have a bonding moment! The key to doing mindset work in nature is to openly talk about how you are feeling in that moment. You can also do this in silence, but encourage your child to identify internally how they are feeling. 

年紀大一些的孩子會喜歡去探險,那就帶他們到附近 (甚至遠些) 的自然區「遠足」吧。事前準備好一份野餐,還可以在美麗的大自然環境中親子野餐呢。在自然環境中修養心態的要點是引導孩子無拘無束地暢談自己在當刻的各種感受。當然大家也可以在大自然中沈默地去感受,那就引導孩子去嚐試識別自己內心確切的感受吧。

Journal Outdoors
戶外日記

In one of our previous articles, we discussed mindset work through journaling, another great way to incorporate journaling and mindset is to journal outdoors. The abundance of sensory things happening outdoors makes it a perfect environment for mindset work. 

我們之前曾經討論過怎樣透過寫日記來調整心態。那麼到戶外去寫日記也是一種很好的方式。戶外總是充滿了各種刺激感官的元素,可以說是一個修養心態的完美環境呢。

We hope that over the last few weeks, you enjoyed learning some tips and tricks on the topic of mindset. Furthermore, we hope that we were able to share some fun tips to allow your child to foster great learning habits for their future learning endeavours.
