Dear Biomimicry Community,
In these unprecedented times, trepidations about the unknowns ahead are common feelings. While we don’t have answers, we at B3.8 are taking comfort in nature—her resilience, her inspiration, and her endurance. We hold this same sense of gratitude for leaders around the world—their resilience, inspiration, and endurance, as they work tirelessly to find solutions and provide healing for those most impacted by COVID-19. To you we are grateful. And while social distancing is necessary to “flatten the curve,” we still can find abundant opportunities to connect with each other and with nature in new and creative ways. So our theme this month is to reconnect with nature, with empathy and with our own humanity.
The silver lining for all of us is that being outdoors in nature is one of the few things that hasn’t been restricted. In fact, in addition to the low risk of viral transmission in nature, it also can help alleviate anxiety, increase oxygen levels, lower blood pressure, improve our sense of well-being, and restore a sense of awe. This slowing and observing our world around us gives us the opportunity to hone our skills as biomimics and as human beings.
Here’s some fun activities we hope will brighten your day and encourage you to reconnect with nature and each other:
From all of us at Biomimicry 3.8, we wish you love, insight, reserves of strength, patience, and compassion.
