That Time Of Year: Getting Out In Nature


Even if you’re an “indoor” person, I think everyone can benefit from a little outside nature fix each day. Last summer I made sure to go outside every day and this year I’d like to do it all year round. When I spend some time outside, I can tell the difference in myself physically and mentally.

Flowers, Hibiscus, Nature, Garden, PlantsWhat I’ve found for myself is being out in nature brings me a sense of relaxation and calm. To begin with the sounds of nature all around is simply wonderful. If I’m at the beach, it’s the music of the ocean waves. By the river, it’s the rhythmic sounds of frogs and crickets I hear because I’m usually out in the evening when the temperatures are tolerable. I’ve witnessed many sunsets and sunrises, each beautiful in their own way. It’s like a big picture show courtesy of Mother Nature. Plus, I’ve seen many different animals, met new friends and more.

There is scientific research that says that being out in nature is healing and a stress reliever. It’s a way of feeling grounded to what is around you. Even though it pretty hot outside right now (actually TOO HOT!) I still like to go outside, making sure it’s the coolest part of the day. Getting my nature fix helps me deal with the symptoms of the illness I have and stress in general. Like I said earlier – it’s just so relaxing!

I recommend you try this yourself. Try to get out in nature even if it’s only for a few minutes. Even if it’s only in your yard (I have had a couple of those days)! You’ll be glad you did!
