Spending time in nature, as I’m sure we all know, is good for us, really good for us. We all criticise Tiny Hands Trump for spending too much time on his own golf courses but just imagine for a second the damage he could’ve wreaked on the world where he not being continually calmed and soothed by the beauty of flora and fauna surrounding him. In our current attention-seeking, decision-demanding world, interaction with nature is not merely necessary, it’s essential.

Being out and about in the great outdoors can be as effortless as feeling the wind in your face and grass underfoot. You don’t need to intently focus, it’s just there, recognise, engage and enjoy it. Nature does not demand your attention, and with the exclusion of the likes of the Great Barrier Reef, Grand Canyon and Amazon Forest, it neither wants nor particularly warrants it. Just relax and go with the flow. Potter, ramble, walk, stretch a leg, breathe, think, talk, listen, relax, chill and let your mind wander. There’s no downside. But don’t take-up golf whatever you do.
