Connection with nature

If you are ever having one of those days or actually to avoid having one of those days, seek out nature, seek out to be just with yourself and the natural outdoors.

Go sit by the sea, or a river, walk in a park, sit on the bench and watch the world go by. Look up and seek out things we do not see often as we rarely look up from the pavement.

Be in the elements, the wind, the rain, cold, enjoy the vitamin D blast from the sun.

We as humans have only been urbanised for a tiny, tiny, tiny fraction of our history and we need all the well-being boost that nature gives. It totally re-energises us.

Connect with nature and ourselves.


I blogged recently about how good a medicine for life laughter is, well, so is the sun. Just the boast to our vitamin D levels alone apart from the warming feeling and relaxation sitting in the sun can bring.

It’s good for the body and good for the mind.

Then you can add walking in nature, sitting by a river, sitting by the sea, walking through a field of tall grass and running your hands through it. Sitting watching a fire and so on.

The simple things, that have somewhat evaporated from our lives are the best things to make us feel good, to lift us, to even heal us.

The all cost nothing and are often easily accessible.

Instead, we often opt to numb ourselves with comfort food, alcohol or hide in trash TV, social media, the internet and any other short-term dopamine fixes we can find.

Get out in the sunshine.
