As you start spending more time indoors, bring some of the natural world into your home. A bunch of branches, bouquet of fresh flowers, assortment of leaves, or collection of pinecones all help you maintain your connection to the natural world, even when you're snuggled up inside your four walls. You'll not only enjoy a more vital living space, you'll improve your own well-being as well. "If we want to improve our health … there's no substitute for being in nature," says Richard Louv, author of the best-selling "Last Child in the Woods."
