Day-to-day life is usually a blur of passing lights, blaring sounds, and people's voices. Connecting with nature helps you find peace in your busy life while making the world a better place.
Let Nature In
Opening your windows, blinds, curtains, and even doors allows sunlight and natural air to flow through your home, giving it a more relaxing and natural atmosphere.
Spend some time each day outside observing what's happening around you. You'll begin to notice things about your environment that you've never seen before, and increase your awareness of your surroundings.
Go For A Walk
It doesn't matter if you walk in the local park or around the neighborhood, getting outside exposure and exercising are good for your health and strengthen your connection with nature. Fresh air and sun exposure are just a couple of examples of how walking each day can improve your connection to nature and your overall health.
Stargazing is a fun and nostalgic way to admire the universe and all of its possibilities. It's humbling to be reminded that our lives here on Earth are a part of an enormous picture formed by millions of worlds that we can hardly even begin to dream of.
Visit Bodies Of Water
Water is the fundamental basis of all life on Earth and natural bodies of water are absolutely beautiful. Plus the sound of water is naturally soothing and although you could buy it in the store, there's nothing like the real thing.
Although driving in the countryside isn't completely natural, if you roll down the windows and let the breeze flow through your hair, you enjoy the natural experience just as well. Watch out for bugs, though.
Eat Fresh Foods
Shopping at a farmer's market is one of the most rewarding ways to spend both time and money, and that's due in large part to the fresh foods. Eating foods that were naturally grown or raised and recently harvested works wonders for your health and well-being, and knowing your food was naturally produced allows you to savor each meal with confidence in your ingredients.
Visit A Zoo
It may seem like child's play, but visiting a zoo offers a unique insight into what the rest of the world looks like and can help to remind us that we are not alone on this Earth.
Back in my day (which wasn't that long ago), playing outside wasn't really optional, but in this technological age it's surprisingly necessary to mention that we should go outside sometimes. I love wasting away my hours watching internet videos as much as the next relatively young person, but getting out of the house keeps us connected to the world that we all share and to each other, and is more likely to keep us young than any number of perfect selfies.
A camping trip with buddies or family is a great way to bond not only with each other but also with nature. Escape from everyday life and find yourself with the trees, stars, and campfire stories.
Start A Garden
Growing a garden is a fascinating experience that exposes you directly to the work of nature as you watch your plants grow. Most plants are simple to maintain and several edible plants can even be grown indoors!
