The benefits of nature contact for human health and well-being are countless: reduced stress and anxiety levels, better sleep, greater happiness, improved well-being and life satisfaction, increased social connectedness, and many more.
Yet humans are increasingly disconnected from nature.
reconnect helps people reconnect with nature:
- With hundreds of inspirational quotes the app awakens human's innate desire to connect with nature.
Artists, scientists, astronauts, writers, musicians, philosophers and many other historical figures throughout the ages cultivated deep love for nature in their hearts and expressed it beautifully with their words.
Moreover, our ancestors from ancient cultures all over the world have condensed natures wisdom in countless beautiful proverbs, which also reveal how much they loved and revered nature.
We are happy to share these precious jewels with you and hope they spark the light of love for nature also in you.
- The app enables users to keep a photo journal of their personal connection with nature and so strengthen their bond with nature.
Simply noticing three good things daily has been shown to improve the well-being, broadens the scope of attention and enhances the psychological resources.
With reconnect we invite you to notice the beauty of nature that is next to you, capture it with the phone camera, and write down the thoughts, emotions, or sensations that this moment in nature evoked in you. This will enhance your nature awareness and connectedness, and also help you perceive natures wisdom.
- With simple mindfulness exercises the app helps users further refine their nature observation capacity and connectedness.
Nature connectedness and mindfulness go hand in hand and enhance each other. So, by practicing the nature awareness exercises, you will automatically become more mindful in your everyday life.
To make this transition into the everyday life easier for you, the exercises often point out explicitly the parallels between the inner world and the outer world.
- The app helps users cultivate and stay aware of their connectedness with nature by visualizing their personal history (i.e. quotes, photos, and exercises).
*** Our vision
Some of mankinds greatest achievements were made while man was out in nature contemplating mindfully in silence.
At reconnect we believe that everyone is born nature lover and has an inborn need for nature contact.
With our app we aim to spark the light of love for nature in humans and so strengthen the weakened bond between humans and nature.
We believe that the stronger our connection with Earth becomes, the more peaceful and healthier we become and the more effectively we can address the environmental challenges of our time.
*** Your support
At reconnect we are continuously striving to ensure a high content quality and developing new ways to help people reconnect with nature.
At the same time we firmly distance ourselves from adding app features that will make you stick to your phone since our aim is to help people maximize their nature time and not the time they spend on their phones.
But we can only achieve this with your support. Thank you
