Autumn Trees - National Stress Awareness Day 4 November
By Rachel Dineley
National Stress Awareness Day falls on Wednesday 4 November this year. It provides us with the opportunity to think about our wellbeing and find advices or support, should we need it. Taking a walk can be a good way to feel better. But there is help at hand , if you need it. For more information you can visit the Bucks Mind website at https://www.bucksmind.org.uk/buckinghamshire-mind-guide/
Rachel Dineley, Diversity Officer for Chiltern Liberal Democrats has written the following poem:
Feeling tired, under stress?
Wishing the pressure a little less?
Then look outside and see the trees,
Branches dancing in the breeze,
The leaves aflutter as they fall :
Do you hear all Nature call?
Now's the time, before it's cold
To take in all the greens and gold,
The russet browns, the lovely cherry,
The scarlet of the holly berry.
Now's the time, before it's dark,
To get outdoors, enjoy the park.
The beeches give a fine display:
They put on all their best array,
To brighten up the woods around
And carpet every inch of ground.
The birches shimmer in the breeze
Oh, how we love the autumn trees!
Back indoors, put on the kettle,
With a cuppa you can settle
Down and think anew,
While you enjoy your golden brew,
How Nature does her best to please
Us all with lovely autumn trees.
