How are you doing?
How are those hands?
Twenty seconds of hand-washing is longer than you think isn’t it?! Just for a minute let’s think about other ways we can use some twenty second moments that may just help you re-charge for your next twenty minutes of juggling children’s needs, partner’s needs, parents’ needs, neighbours’ needs, work needs and focus on your needs!
According to experts, Twenty seconds with nature is all it takes to experience
- increased levels of happiness
- decreased levels of anxiety and depression
- increased sense of closeness to others and of life feeling worthwhile
- increased desire to care for the earth

Look for a time you could extend these moments even once a week and try some of the ideas below
