Recently I’ve just stumbled upon something I didn’t know I would need: Nature journal.

I have always loved nature and felt a special kind of connection to nature. I do like the act of journaling, but somehow I don’t prefer writing journal; by that I mean writing down my emotions on paper. I’d love to journal the surrounding world in motion – as I have been doing by taking photographs and filming videos; and nature journal seems to be another medium in which I can do so.

After taking the first online courses on nature journal on Skillshare by Rosalie Haizlett, I felt intrigued and started reading more about this subject. One thing leads to another, I kept on researching about forest bathing, the art of foraging, urban sketching, the healing power of nature and way more. I decided that nature journal would be a new habit that I would love to adopt. In order to keep track of my journey, my pieces of work would be uploaded on my Gallery here, if you’d like to have a sneak peek of this journey.

To whom would I recommend this activity?

Almost everyone, but I think it would be more helpful (and more interesting) if you:

  • love nature and want to find a way to be more connected to nature;
  • love getting your hands dirty, using whatever art mediums;
  • are seeking for a light-hearted activity to keep you grounded and calm;
  • are naturally curious about your surroundings.
