A Dose of Nature: Why Birding Will Boost - Birds and Blooms
You can help to support the publishing of my book about the mental health benefits of birdwatching by contributing to the crowdfund. This observation is not new: it was introduced and popularized by biologist, theorist, and author, Edward O. Sometimes it is a bird that provides the beauty, such as the time when four bullfinches sat resplendent in a bare tree in front of me, their blushed pink and peach tones offset against their stark black heads.I always allude back to the dunnock, often overlooked as a drab bird and labelled as a ‘little brown job’. Neurological dysfunction is reassessed at three monthly intervals, and exercise programmes are modified accordingly.
Joe Harkness | Nature connection, neurodivergence and mental
Three years later he has become a spokesperson for the benefits of birdwatching, spreading the word everywhere from Radio 4 to Downing Street. For me, the most important part of how nature helps is in transcending across all of the senses, effectively providing something positive for everyone.The exercises are repetitive in nature and it is not uncommon for families to experience issues relating to co-operation. For two years, I’ve been writing about the therapeutic benefits of bird-watching, keen to share my own positive experiences with those who ended up reading.
Bird Therapy by Joe Harkness: Unbound
Harkness’s case, birds are his ticket to the outdoors, and birding is the elixir that saves him from his secret anguish. I’ve been writing about Bird Therapy for three years now and in 2017 I had articles published in Birdwatch magazine and The Curlew. Next time that you go out to a wild place, let your senses indulge in the wonders around you and take time to notice the subtle aesthetics in everyday natural encounters.Fans of Richard Mabey’s popular book, Nature Cure, and Kate Bradbury’s lovely and often introspective The Bumblebee Flies Anyway, will find much to ponder in this memoir.
