Our connection with Nature is innately our connection with ourselves because we are inherently Nature.
Mountains, rivers, oceans, forests, dirt…
It gives us the space to remember who we are.
God and Nature are intertwined. Nature gives us the instructions for how to be happy.
Breathe in clean air, look out from a mountaintop over a vista, or on cliffs that jut out of the ocean, or stand beneath a waterfall, watch lightening rip through the sky, ride the waves and paddle with dolphins, or lie on your back and discover other worldly cloud formations, sunsets or magnificent constellations.
Walk barefoot, connecting soles with the pure earth or sand, feel the energy.
Watch the sunrise. Go out at dawn and watch the world go from dark to light, feel the energy being infused into body, mind and spirit.
Mimic the plants and reach for the sun. Get outside during daylight hours.
Take a conscious walk or hike among the trees in serenity and solitude. Listen, smell, breathe.
Swim in the ocean, lake pond, or outdoor pool.
Take a leisure bike ride or go out in a row boat, canoe or kayak.
Tend to a garden.
Snuggle or walk your pet.
Connect with nature anyway you can and remember you are part of it and it is part of you.
