how & why mother nature restores me

When I'm cut off from the natural world indoors I begin to feel discombobulated.

Nature slots me back in where I need to be.

Walking moves at the same pace as my thoughts, my thinking comes in waves of softness

rather than bolts of lightening.

I often set off into nature straight after work, however I didnt fully take into account the shortening days of Winter fast approaching. I set off on a challenging hike around 4pm with my husband. We navigated our way across a couple of shallow flowing rivers balancing on loose rocks to get across.

We breathlessly climbed the side of a steep rocky mountain and then began to make our way down the treacherous decline. Slippery mud, fallen trees and enormous bolders all to traverse. I was completely out of my comfort zone and then that feeling of panic began to creep into my tummy as I watched as the sky darkened. We had another hour or so before we were to reach the car. Two rivers to cross in the darkness... Fear was taken hold.

This is why I do it. I can be afraid, I can be courageous, I can be curious, I can be still, I can just be.

Nature takes me out of my comfort zone and brings me more into myself.

When I come closer to the edge is when I feel gifted with who I truely am.

Some of the Limitless Gifts from Mother Nature are

* boost in creativity

* enrinchement of our mood

* nature makes us kinder to ourselves and others

* nature can aid in the reduction of disease

* nature gifts us mental clarity

“Go out, go out I beg of you And taste the beauty of the wild Behold the miracle of the earth With all the wonder of a child.”
