What is "5 Minutes in Nature?"
Well, it’s sort of like “5-Minute Abs,” except it will help you lower your blood pressure, cut your risk of diabetes and improve your mood. And it really does work in just 5 minutes, so it’s OK if you don’t have time for a long hike. Even 5 minutes in nature provides real benefits. 

The 5 Minutes In Nature project gives you activities to minimize distractions and maximize nature’s benefits when you can take a quick break. Check out the suggested activity. Go outside. Concentrate on nature. Refuel your soul. 

And what’s good for you can also be good for the planet. We also provide  actions you can take — if you’re inclined — to ensure there will be nature to enjoy whenever you’re able.  

5 Minutes in Nature is an initiative of nature photographer Kevin Ebi and the text and images are his. 

 


Let's get started
Take 5:
Appreciate Green
  
Lots of things in nature are green, but take 5 minutes to appreciate the many different shades of green around you. Compare the shades on one plant to another or look for variation on a single plant. Read more about the activity.
