The pandemic showed us how to make the most of our indoor lives without stepping outside. This meant bringing nature to our homes and benefiting from it. We’ve learned many things in the COVID-era and many of them have to do with enjoying the simple things, slowing down a bit, and connecting with nature.

Whether you’re recovering from recent surgery, can’t take a break from work, or don’t have the time to plan a trip, here are a few ways you can still connect to nature and reap its benefits:

Add Indoor Plants

No matter where you are, your space can always benefit from a few extra indoor plants. Not only do they look breathtaking and add that aesthetic pop of green, but they are also very beneficial for our mental and physical wellness. They will boost your mood, increase your energy levels, and make you feel more positive.

Some other benefits of indoor plants include:

  • They provide better air quality
  • They make you calmer and more relaxed
  • They increase focus and productivity

Watch Nature Videos

If you can’t go to the beach or enjoy an afternoon in the woodland, don’t worry. You can feel their therapeutic effect by watching calming nature videos and hearing their healing sounds. This way, you can bring the tranquility of nature to your home, hospital room, or workplace without heading out.

We have a collection of serene nature videos here.

Use Essential Oils

Essential oils are a great way to connect with nature and they can also help relieve various symptoms of anxiety, stress, etc.

Peppermint Oil

This oil helps with nausea, headaches, and stomach conditions like IBS.

Lavender Oil

One of the most popular essential oils, lavender has a calming effect that’s great for anxiety and depression. It also helps manage insomnia.


Chamomile is often used in teas to help people relax and fall asleep faster. Its oil can do the same: it eases anxiety, stress, and helps you sleep better.

Bring Nature Home with Calming Landscape Photography

Studies suggest that viewing nature art and videos has the same therapeutic effect that being in nature has. That’s why at Healing with Imagery, we have curated a collection of nature and landscape photography that has captured breath-taking views of nature at its best.

Have a look at our fine art photography here that can be installed in homes, workplaces, healthcare facilities, and workplaces.
