Connecting With Yourself Through Nature Is So Easy & So Worth It! by Susan Carroll
Human beings and Mother Nature are intimately intertwined. You are nature in human form. When I ask someone what getting out in the natural world does for them, I hear:
- “It brings me peace, clarity, expands my heart, connects me to the world.”
- “It fills me with fresh ideas and fresh perspective.”
- “It’s my home.”
- “It recalibrates my sense of well-being and rightness in the world.”
- “It gives me calmness, grounding.”
- “It inspires me, renews me.”
- “Nature is my spirituality.”
This is what Mother Nature does for us. She is always there to help bring us back to ourselves. If you weren’t nature, do you really think you’d feel like this when you were in it?
Take some time to go outside and be in and with nature. This could be at a local park or in your backyard, and begin with a very doable 10 minutes. Start with your eyes closed:
- Notice the sounds both near to you and off in the distance.
- What do you notice physically?
- What scents do you notice floating through the air?
- Open your eyes and look at what’s right in front of you, 100 feet away, 500 feet away.
Let nature bring you back into connection with yourself.
Let it bring you home.
