There is a quote that says, “spend some time with Nature, and you will find yourself.” You only have to take one walk in the forest to understand this quote rings true. Nature is raw and real and sometimes unforgiving, but it can make you feel relaxed, recharged, and capable.
Whether it makes you feel alive, awake, happy, renewed, or just present, the benefits of spending time outdoors are endless. Without nature, we are lost in a world of dark busy streets and cold cubicles. Remembering to just go outside can change every part of your day for the better.
Our daily routines have desensitized our brains, and we have forgotten about the beauty around us while only focusing on the bottom line. Much to our dismay, this behavior has not made us smarter or better at all. Instead, it has halted our imagination and drive.
Nature reminds us to connect with our senses, listening for whispering streams, chatty birds, and even roaring waterfalls. There is always something new and exciting to discover during every outdoor walk, whether just around your block or through a national park.
Our minds need this stimulation to grow and develop into the best version of ourselves. Taking the time to find a place that you can be calm and one with nature is imperative in both your physical, mental, and spiritual growth.
It is no surprise that many cultures around the world have centered their meditation techniques around nature. Spending meditative time in nature can be used to awaken all your senses. Simply putting your feet in the sand, hands in the dirt, or taking deep breaths of fresh mountain air can bring you feelings of relaxation and connection.
No matter where you are in the world you can find or build a safe little getaway to reconnect with nature and find your balance again. If you are unable to get inside, it has been proven that even nature sounds can help you reach a meditative state that can improve your well-being.
