Have you ever thought about using nature’s benefits to change the way you feel? And no, I’m not talking about making a tea out of some magical plants or eating some mushrooms. I’m talking about landscapes and walking “freely” in the nature.
This is not something new. I’m sure you all noticed how powerful a sunny day can be for uplifting your mood. Or maybe a rainy day makes you feel complete because you project your inner state into it. But there is more besides the weather. A crying river, a green field or a weird tree can do the trick to rise our eyebrow and maybe our mood.
I always find peace when I take long walks surrounded by trees, sheep and wild poop. And there are lots of YouTube videos with landscapes and wild background thunderstorms or crickets. So why don’t we use this power to uplift our mood before it’s too late? Why don’t we throw ourselves in Mother Nature’s arms more often where we can be alone with our thoughts? It’s because we have no time? No money? No nature?
There is that saying that where there’s a will, there’s a way. But sometimes we need the way to lift our mood so we can find our will. Nature can do that. Put your headphones on, play some thunderstorm symphony and relax (which is easier to be said than done).
All this being said, how do you harvest the power of nature?
