It’s the weekend! For many people (and hopefully you), this means a little reprieve from work. I know,… there are chores to do, shopping to get done – the demands of life are never ending.
But I urge you, if you possibly can – walk, run, drive to the nearest garden, park, or conservation area – and breathe in some green. Listen to the wind in the trees, feel the sun on your face (or the rain, if that’s the case). Surround yourself with the splendid beauty and abundance of Nature. Whether you know it or not, you are very connected to her. And nothing pleases her more, than to please and heal you.
There are many good articles about the benefits of spending time in nature. Here’s a quick read for you, 11 Scientific Benefits of Being Outdoors.
If you’re a city dweller and don’t even know where the nearest park is, it’s been way too long! And if you won’t take my word for it, then perhaps you’ll heed the wisdom of these famous people:
