I don’t know about you, but I always feel so much better after spending time immersed in nature. It came as no surprised when I recently read an article by Jim Robbins that says there’s scientific research that proves this.
“A growing body of research points to the beneficial effects that exposure to the natural world has on health, reducing stress and promoting healing.” *
In fact study’s now quantify this and say 120 minutes a week** is the time we need immersed in nature to reap the benefits.
If something has bothered me, I always feel a million times lighter if I just get out and go for a walk. Even better if I can head off for a bush walk. I love just standing outside barefoot, feeling the earth beneath my feet. I love tuning into the sounds of nature, focussing on different bird’s song particularly. I find taking in natural, beautiful landscapes nourishes my soul. Nature provides food for my body and soul and I will never take this for granted.
What do you do to connect with Nature?
