Discover 5 transformative ways picnics nourish your mind and spirit and help improve your mental health.

There's something truly dreamy about having a summer picnic with your BFF’s. Beyond the delicious food, coffee, and delightful company, picnics offer many mental health benefits. As we are self-care queens and busy bees, taking time to nourish our mental well-being is so important.

In this blog, we'll explore the lovely mental health benefits that picnics bring and why they should be a part of your summer.

1:  ​​Unplug, unwind and sip in the moment.

In a world that is so connected, escaping by having a picnic with dreamy Mills coffee provides the perfect respite. On average 41% of teenagers feel overwhelmed by the number of text alerts they receive on a daily basis. It's essential to find moments to disconnect and be present in the company of your BFFs. 

When you plan your perfect picnic with your BFFs, you can improve your mental health by surrounding yourself with nature and sipping your favourite Mills coffee. Put down your phone and engage in convo with your besties. You’ll be truly present in the moment.

But the benefits don't stop there. Another way a picnic helps improve your mental health is by using it to reconnect with your surroundings and rekindle your relationship with yourself. As you take the time to pause, reflect, and sip your favourite coffee, you create a space for self-care. As self-care queens, we understand the importance of these picnics as a means to recharge and bask in the sun while savouring something you enjoy.

  1. Sip, smile and soak in nature

Picnics are a wonderful way to appreciate nature and spend time outside. Whether you enjoy a picnic in your backyard, at the beach, or in a nearby park, you will be surrounded by nature.

While taking in the mental health benefits of being at one with nature, stay refreshed with an iced coffee made with the beautiful flavour of our Mindful Moments blend. Its silky chocolate and hazelnut tones offer a really dreamlike experience, bringing extra richness to your outdoor picnic.

Nature and coffee have a significant impact on your mental health. Breathing in fresh, clean air will help to revitalise your mind, body, and spirit. This lovely combination of coffee and picnics can improve your mental health and increase your immune system.

  1. The perfect blend: Vitamin D and Coffee

Summer picnics are the ultimate mood! Warm weather not only makes everything better, but it also provides us with a dosage of Vitamin D. This fantastic vitamin is fantastic for improving your mental health and overall well-being.

Imagine you and your BFF on a warm picnic blanket, soaking up the sun and sipping a cool iced coffee. Vitamin D causes happy hormones to be released, making you feel more cheerful and energised. Who knew that something as simple as a picnic could have such positive mental health benefits?

  1. A cup of creative ideas

Observe nature, look at the beautiful flowers, listen to birds chirping, or waves breaking on the rocks. To stimulate your creativity, use your senses, colours, and textures.

  1. Love, laughter, and picnic vibes

Surround yourself with BFFs and loved ones for a picnic packed with laughter and positive vibes. A nice time spent together not only generates amazing memories but is also an excellent approach to boosting your mental health. Bonding with your fave people stimulates and releases serotonin, the happiness hormone.

Make your picnic a therapy session, where you may indulge in wonderful food, Authentically Brew-tiful coffee, and catch up with your besties.


A picnic is not only a fun way to enjoy nature and spend time with loved ones, but is also a powerful tool for improving your mental health. What better way to complement your picnic than with the dreamy flavours of Florence by Mills Coffee? Sip your favourite brew and allow the aromatic notes to transport you to a world of peace and joy.

Did you know that the Florence Glass Tumbler is an excellent picnic companion? Because of its portable design, you can make coffee on the go, ensuring that each sip is fresh. So, gather your loved ones, pack your picnic basket, and allow the combination of a blissful picnic and Mills Coffee to create memories that will warm your heart and nourish your soul.
