The Wild Remedy: How Nature Mends Us - Emma Mitchell | Mental Health Books Description

Have you ever taken a walk in the wilderness, taken a deep breath, and felt something loosen or unclench inside of your chest - a tightness you didn't even know existed? It has been studied time and time again that reconnecting with nature and being in natural settings can help you to feel calm, relaxed and less stressed. The Wild Remedy: How Nature Mends Us by Emma Mitchell is an intimate and profoundly personal account of how nature can help improve our mental health. 

Mitchell moved from the city to Cambridgeshire in 2003 after suffering with depression for 25 years. This book is her personal account of how putting herself back into nature helped to chase away “the grey slug” in her mind and helped her to feel brighter and more positive. In this intricately detailed diary, she takes us with her as she follows the paths and trails around her cottage and further afield, sharing her finds and tracking the lives of local flora and fauna over the course of a year. Calling on new research into such areas as forest bathing and the ways in which our bodies and minds respond to plants and wildlife when we venture outdoors, Emma's diary is intricately detailed with drawings, paintings and photographs of her time spent in the great outdoors. She reflects on the impact that being in nature has and backs it up with scientific evidence, charting her seasonal highs and lows as she does. 

This is a truly unique and touching read for anyone who is interested in how reconnecting with nature can help to improve mental health struggles and alleviate depression and anxiety in the modern world. 

Manufacturer's Description:

'This is a beautiful, beautiful book, and I can't recommend it enough.' Sue Perkins

Emma Mitchell has suffered with depression - or as she calls it, `the grey slug' - for twenty-five years. In 2003, she moved from the city to the edge of the Cambridgeshire Fens and began to take walks in the countryside around her new home, photographing, collecting and drawing as she went. Each walk lifted her mood, proving to be as medicinal as any talking therapy or pharmaceutical. In Emma's hand-illustrated diary, she takes us with her as she follows the paths and trails around her cottage and further afield, sharing her nature finds and tracking the lives of local flora and fauna over the course of a year. Reflecting on how these encounters impact her mood, Emma's moving and candid account of her own struggles is a powerful testament to how reconnecting with nature may offer some answers to today's mental health epidemic. While charting her own seasonal highs and lows, she also explains the science behind such changes, calling on new research into such areas as forest bathing and the ways in which our bodies and minds respond to plants and wildlife when we venture outdoors. Written with Emma's characteristic wit and frankness, and filled with her beautiful drawings, paintings and photography, this is a truly unique book for anyone who has ever felt drawn to nature and wondered about its influence over us.
