“Fresh air is as good for the mind as for the body. Nature always seems to try to talk to us as if she had some great secret to tell. And so, she has.”
~ Joh Lubbock
“Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you.”
~ Frank Lloyd Wright
“Just being surrounded by bountiful nature, rejuvenates and inspires us.”
~ E. O. Wilson.
“To sit in the shade on a fine day and look upon verdure is the most perfect refreshment.”
~ Jane Austen
We have some beautiful weather days happening here in the GTA! Today I did a 15-minute drive to a friend, bagged lunch in hand, camp chair in the trunk, a shawl for my shoulders, and only an outside visit on my mind. To sit beneath the canopy of trees was magical. I felt an instant touch to my spirit. The gentle breeze blew away any negative energy I might have been carrying and it restored my strength to heal and rejuvenate! Nature hugged our visit!
Regardless of personal circumstance we all have access to nature. Go outside, look around, and find a spot to soak it in. Embrace the restorative energy of nature!
“Nature can bring you to stillness, that is its gift to you.”
~ Eckhart Tolle
