It is so easy to slip into relationship lethargy once the kids consume your lives. Nikki, founder of Nikki Cox Wellness, agrees by pointing out, “Rest, relaxation and replenishment also promotes a happier life, which emanates from parents to their kids. As the research tells us, happiness is contagious, so happy parents = happy kids = a happy family unit!”

Studies have shown that if you look at an image of a natural environment, your stress levels drop and your mood and energy levels improve, says parenthood wellness coach Nikki Cox. “It’s because you’re allowing your brain to dial down and rest, like an overused muscle”, she explains. “Your brain understands that natural environments contain highly complex sensory inputs and innately refuses to interpret or make sense of them, so it relaxes. And that’s just by looking at nature! But actually getting outdoors and connecting directly with natural environments provide much greater benefits.” Here, Nikki suggests some low-cost, low-effort ways to get outdoors:
go for a walk/run/bike ride / eat outside on your lunch-break / have a picnic / swim in a natural body of water / do some gardening / go stargazing
