Wow- this week really flew by in a blur. I honestly feel like it was just yesterday that I was writing this post on gratitude…I don’t know how it is Friday again already.
But it is Friday, which means it’s time for another One Simple Change post- the 18th in my year-long series of holistic lifestyle tips.
Today I want to talk about connecting to nature.
I’m sure that if I tried, I could find scientific studies which have established that connecting to nature is beneficial to our health and overall well-being. But I don’t need someone in a lab coat to confirm this fact for me. It’s something I just know.
I know it because of how I feel when I go for a hike or a walk in the woods. I know it because of how I feel after I spend time in my garden. I know it because of how I feel when I simply sit on my porch in the spring, surrounded by as many flowers as possible.
How about you? Do you find that connecting to nature helps you feel healthier? Happier? Do you make an effort to connect to nature? How do you do so? As always, I’d love to here whether you are “in” to this week’s One Simple Change.
ps Tomorrow is Food Revolution Day…a day meant to inspire people to celebrate real food, scratch cooking, and a healthier lifestyle. I love the idea…don’t you?
