June is a brilliant month for taking stock of your progress so far this year. It is also a good time for spending more time in nature.

Notice colours, sounds, smells and textures. Carry a notebook and camera so that you can record any ideas that come to you.

If possible, switch off your phone. Slow down and listen to the natural rhythms. Enjoy some food and drink outside.

Experiment with writing a genre you haven’t tried before. Try writing a poem every day for a week – maybe inspired by some aspect

of the natural world around you. Grow something from a seed. Draw a picture or create a collage. Refill your creative well.
