Let’s face it, our bodies are made to live in nature, to enjoy the sun and to lavish in the tranquility and luxury of a sunset, a forest or a beautiful beach area. We were simply not designed to spend all our time in concrete blocks and eat junk food. So let’s take a look at some very useful and quite fun tips and recommendations for reconnecting with nature:
- Start small. You don’t have to become a lion tamer right away. A small step would be to buy some potted plants, get a pet, and start taking walks through the park, instead of taking the bus to work.
- Go jogging. There might be a lot of great natural areas in or around your city, where you could go jogging, walking or even hiking.
- Enjoy nature – don’t just run through it. A lot of people carry their worries and chaotic thoughts about their day-to-day life into a natural place. If you enter a forest or you go to the beach, think of it as a sacred space where you have to let go of anything negative. So, even if your walk just takes a few minutes, during that time, it’s important to disconnect and just focus on the song of the birds and the rustling of the leaves.
It is important for all ages to experience the joy and respite nature can provide. Make sure your chosen senior living skilled nursing facility in Denver offers outside activities to encourage time to reconnect with nature.
