The Importance Of Spending Time Surrounded By Nature.

As John Muir once said, “I’ve never found time spent among nature a waste of time.”

I value solitude and quiet moments of reflection. It allows me to block out the white noise and disconnect from technology for a short while. Now, I’ll be the first to admit that I haven’t done a digital detox retreat nor have I switched off my technology for an entire day however, I have taken micro steps. For instance, I consciously leave my phone at home when I go on walks with my puppy, Lana.

By leaving my phone at home, it allows me to focus on the present moment, to be there (physically and mentally) and give her my undivided attention. I try where I can to leave my phone at home when I go on mature walks or short hikes. (Albeit, I do love capturing the moment either with my phone or my camera so I do bend my own rule at times!)

Sometimes we need a break to tune in with ourselves and come back to the present. These days, there are so many things whether it be people or technology that are constantly trying to get our attention and it’s in those moments when you should consider taking a step back and taking a moment to block out the noise.

Understandably, most of us can’t just run away from a situation or avoid our technology all day but where possible, you may want to schedule in time to go for a walk and be among nature for a short time.

I know that I feel better when I have go for a walk and reconnected with nature. It seems to calm me and ground me. There are some days where I crave going on a coastal walk to look out at the crystal blue water and hear the waves crashing along the shore line and then other days, I’d prefer to put on my hiking boots and walk along a trail through a national park.

Have you gone on a nature walk lately or do you have a favourite place? Feel free to comment as I’d love to hear your thoughts on how this makes you feel and if it’s something you have tried before.
