How can nature help us deal with grief? In today's day and age, it can feel like we're detached from the natural world around us - but how do we find the way, and time, to reconnect with it?
This week Jimmy is joined by Charlie Corbett to talk about his book '12 Birds to Save Your Life'. After the unexpected loss of his mother, Charlie realised he'd become a stranger to the natural world surrounding him.
Looking outwards from his own grief, Charlie found solace in an unexpected place - birds.
Charlie and Jimmy talk about the importance of interacting with nature for your mental health, the excitement of learning about newfound hobbies, and most importantly - what their favourite bird is.
