The Great Outdoors
What better way to re connect with yourself than the Great Outdoors....A gift from Mother Nature, which is free....NO CHARGE!
In yesteryear we used to embrace the outdoor life but as technology and longer hours of work prevail, we are all being governed by the screen, whether that is the TV, mobile, laptop, I Pad, electronic gadgets, we are forgetting that the beauty of nature and the countryside is natures prescription to Anxiety and Depression.
You cannot help but embrace the Great Outdoors when you are presented with its gifts...Mother Nature brings us many gifts and the changing of the seasons is just one of them.
Our senses revel in the outdoor life, enabling us to switch off from the stresses of modern life .
We are now in the midst of Autumn, where the leaves are falling and the Autumnal shades bring colour to what can sometimes be grey days.
Winter is just around the corner and when it bites us on the bum, it allows us to hibernate, light the fire, take stock of our live, rest and sleep.
When Spring bursts into bloom it brings with it New Beginnings... new growth and colour once again returning after the darker, shorter nights. A time to prepare the soil, for new growth... just to see the new shoots appear, can bring a smile!
Summer gifts us with longer days of light and Sun, it renews our Strength and life looks bright and colourful. The sun against our faces gives a sense of well being and gives us a shot of well needed Vitamin D.
Mother Nature, prescribes what is needed for each and everyone of us, she is always there with a helping hand, the trees that shelter us from the winds, the sky that holds The Stars, Moon and The Sun. Plants that adorn our gardens with colour and hope. The countryside that stretches for miles with its hidden treasures. The tides of the Sea that ebb and flow, all we have to do is embrace each of the gifts she bestows upon us...Free of charge!
In challenging times it can be difficult to even think about setting foot outside the door but if you can just open a window or sit on the step and Breathe....it`s a step in the right direction, I Promise you!
