Nurture In Nature

Nurture In Nature

The natural world is teeming with life.  From macroscopic to microscopic.  To rejuvenate, spend time in the elements: fire, air water and earth. We crave clean air and sunshine. Our brain uses sunlight to set its biorhythms and to strengthen our bones. Breath is life.

Notice the effect of greenery. Find the spaces in your community where you can be surrounded by it. Take time to appreciate the color and texture of it. Smell the earth. Get off the pavement and walk on bare ground. When conditions permit, put down a cloth and lay your whole body on the earth. Appreciate how heavy your body feels upon it.

Take in the vastness of the sky, day and night.  Allow yourself to feel as small as you are in contrast. Find water. Immerse in it, whenever possible. Sit beside it even if it is in a bowl next to you!
Watch the play of light upon it, reflecting everything.
