When was the last time you took a “nature break”? Hobie Hare, founder of “Your Nature Life” encourages us not only to take some time and get out into nature but also to bring Biophilia into our homes, with reminders of positive emotions, maybe it’s seashells from the beech, or a photograph that conjures an emotion that resonates with you. Both Hobie and I are photographers, so it was nice for me to discuss and hear his perception of how imagery can improve and enhance a space, and the mindset of those experiencing those photographs. He suggests that when you consider which picture to chose, you think about what that picture will bring to your space. Maybe it’s contemplation, peace, serenity, excitement, adventure, maybe even courage. He shares explanations of the images shown here on our website journalofbiophilicdesign.com, such as the tree, bending, heavy with snow, reminds us that nature finds a way, and so do we. Hobie also emphasises on how we can use nature to connect to ourselves and also our community, how we should remind ourselves that nature is bountiful, we should enjoy the bounty that we have. Slow down, start small, build regular habits to connect your life more to nature. I forgot to mention this on the podcast, but I think also photographs of nature also remind us to look for certain things when we are outside. He had mentioned that when you take your nature breaks, wherever you are, look at the angle of the sun, the intensity, what can you smell on the wind, watch and enjoy the behaviour of birds. A photograph is not only a visual reminder of what you’ve seen, it can also help encourage an enhanced perception when you go back outside.
