Disconnecting while out in nature allows me to leave the fog of craziness and the hustle of daily life behind. I go into the mountains with life’s burdens on my shoulders, create the space to work through things, and I leave so much lighter.
Have you considered this union with nature for yourself? Did you know it can be a form of self-love? There are studies that show an increase in mood and a decrease in heart rate and blood pressure when being outside, and how the smell of soilincreases your serotonin. Be kind to yourself and consider working the outdoors into your daily life if you don’t already. You deserve this natural boost to well-being.
This Earth Day, this April, and for the rest of your life, may you find the simple joys hidden in the great outdoors, just outside the reach of your four walls. I would love to hear what creative ways you have of getting outside, and what the local area has to offer you! Let me know on IG here!
With love and authenticity,
