"I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order." —John Burroughs
Little Gems of Wisdom & Fun from Mary Lynn Ziemer
Today we celebrate Earth Day. And what better way to celebrate our beautiful earth than by communing with nature. "Nature therapy" is a real thing. Just a little time spent in nature has an immediate calming effect. Listen to the breeze gently blowing through the trees, hear the birds chirping, be still as you watch for wildlife.... it will revive your energy and renew your spirit. You'll return to your activities with a fresher perspective. I promise!
Think of your 'nature therapy' appointment as an investment in yourself that will yield huge dividends. Connecting with nature allows your mind to become more calm, creative, and full of new ideas. It gives you clarity about issues you've been trying to resolve. As you cherish time in Nature, you will feel what it has to offer. Take advantage of this time to go within and see where it leads you.
Taking a walk around the block during the first hours of a sunrise, or finding a place where you can peacefully watch the sunset, can be a magnificent way to start or end your day. The beauty of that moment inspires a realization that we are all "one." We are connected with nature, as well as everything and everyone around us. As Einstein pointed out, we are connected through a Unified field of energy. We are connected by love.
Nature has scientifically proven health benefits!
Evidence from over 140 studies, involving more than 290 million people and 20 countries, showed the following results:
"We found that spending time in, or living close to, natural green spaces is associated with diverse and significant health benefits." -Caoimhe Twohig-Bennett, from UEA's Norwich Medical School
Results from these studies saw:
• Decreased chance of various diseases
• Reduced diastolic blood pressure
• Reduced heart rate
• Reduced stress
• Improved respiratory
• Increased immune system
After reviewing hundreds of studies examining nature's effects on health, University of Illinois environment and behavior researcher Ming Kuo believes the answer lies in nature's ability to enhance the body's immune system. According to Kuo:
"Nature doesn't just have one or two active ingredients. It's more like a multivitamin that provides us with all sorts of the nutrients we need. That's how nature can protect us from all these different kinds of diseases--cardiovascular, respiratory, mental health, musculoskeletal, etc. -- simultaneously."
So, take full advantage of your peaceful adventure. As you feel the beauty of Nature, open your heart to whatever is in front of you. If you see a bird, a tree in bloom, a flower, a body of water, or a beautiful sky, take the time to see it in its full glory. Feel the pure joy of it, and this "living in the present" experience will bring you great calm. And in your calm, it’s a great time to ask for clarity. Search for answers to questions you may have on your mind.
Nature is a magnificent gift that supports us in our quest to be the best we can be. With a calm mindset, we can see the path to wherever we want to go more clearly.
Have an absolutely magical week full of love, gratitude, and fun, fun, FUN!
