The Healing Power of Nature
Are you aware of your connection with nature? What is your relationship to it? Do you spend time in nature? When was the last time you felt the earth under your feet? Or put your hands in the dirt? Or sat on the beach watching the waves crash? Has it been a while? Whether you realize it or not, we are part of nature.
If you want to thrive in our modern world, get back in touch with nature. This can be done in many different ways and doesn’t require dramatic lifestyle changes. Some people choose to go hiking or rock climbing. Others may choose gardening or simply sitting under a tree. It really makes no difference. Nature can be experienced anywhere. Is there a park near your house? A tree in your back yard? A window at your office? Find some place where you can take 5 minutes or more each day to experience nature. While in this spot, breathe the air, feel the sun’s warmth, smell the smells, and smile. Recognize that you are alive and are a part of all of creation. This simple act will allow you to access the tremendous healing power of nature.
