What activity is associated with positive well-being and decreased anxiety? Being in nature! And, what other activity promotes longevity and reduces stress while increasing strength, endurance, and flexibility? Exercise! Put these two together and you have a winning combination. You don’t have to travel to some remote forest or mountaintop to garner these benefits. Just stepping outside into your backyard to flex your muscles during a DIY, walking along the trail, or traveling into the open space with your mind and spirit open to the possibility of transformation will help you to connect and focus. Your spirit will be energized and you’ll feel a sense of calm as you escape the usual, more hectic honks, beeps and zooms of urban life. Cherish these moments in nature. We are so fortunate to live among these majestic rolling green hills, covered in trees, populated by wildlife of all kinds. Cheers a nature-filled day!
