H is for Hammock: mindfulness in nature

Once you’ve mastered the skill of getting into a hammock – sit in the middle, find your centre of balance, hold the edges and carefully swing your legs over the side and into the material – a world of relaxation awaits.

Simply lie back and allow your mind to wander as you look at the cloud formations in the sky and listen to the sounds of nature.
