Make Time for Nature

How much time do you spend in nature? Nature heals, inspires, relaxes.

Do you realize how much of our lives are spent looking at a screen? According to Forbes, we spend as much as 12 hours a day looking at a screen. We work on computers, we process advertisements, subliminal messages, trends, and “news,” through a screen. We communicate through a screen.

It’s an influx, an information overload. Not only are we clogging our brains with so much “stuff,” but we’re overloading our eyes. Don’t you ever just want to close your eyes sometimes to give them a rest from the constant artificial light? I know I’m writing this on a screen myself — but since you’re consuming content anyway, I hope this helps you consider something.

Here’s what I want you to consider: spend time in nature. No headphones, no digital book. Just you, the birds, green space, blue space, which ever.

Listen to the trees, listen to the ocean and just be. Connect with yourself.
