If you can learn to quiet your mind, it helps recharge your emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being. People who have been suffering from stress, sickness, or a trauma can spend quiet contemplative time in gardens, community parks, or mountains to heal.
Nature is always lovely, invincible, glad,
whatever is done and suffered by her creatures.
All scars she heals,
whether in rocks or water or sky or hearts.
Viewing scenes of nature, reduces anger, fear, or stress and increases pleasant feelings. Exposure to nature not only makes you feel better emotionally, it contributes to your physical wellbeing, reducing blood pressure, heart rate, muscle tension, and the production of stress hormones.
Nature is the one place where miracles
not only happen,
but they happen all the time.
Being in nature also bestows a sense of connectedness, meaning, and purpose. There is a sense of chaotic order in the way nature works; the plants and animals are interconnected in a series of complex relationships. Everything coexists in nature without the necessity of outside intervention.
Look deep, deep into nature, and then
You will understand everything better.
Being in nature helps to clear one’s head of life’s demands and disruptive thoughts. This clarity of thought may lead to finding answers to life’s questions and discovering insights to life’s problems.
You never conquer a mountain.
Mountains can’t be conquered;
you conquer yourself
your hopes, your fears.
