Whether a cool breeze eases discomfort, birdsong lifts our spirits, or the sky smiles above like a sapphire pool of endless possibilities, the great outdoors remains a constant in our lives. It calls to us. When we listen, we are at our best.
Often times, you can find me staring outside a window at work or at home, daydreaming about wanting to be outside.
Not everybody is like me, and I’m sure a lot of people enjoy the comforts of their own home and the modern conveniences we have. I know I enjoy phone apps, computers, television (when I can find time to watch it), indoor plumbing, and all kinds of things that we have. But… there’s still something inside my very skin that craves to be outside like nothing else. This feeling awakens from its winter hibernation around springtime – now! (I actually still have desires to be outside during the winter time, me acting on that desire is less likely than in warmer months.)
What I’ve found out is, nature is so great for de-stressing. As you know it, we carry a lot of stress inside us, and not enough people take the time to do something about it. There are many things that could relieve stress, sure, but nature is one of the key things that could beat it.
When you are in tune with nature, you are connecting to your core being – how the Creature intended you to be.
