WEEK TWO – Spend in nature

“The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quite alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature. As longs as this exists, and it certainly always will, I know that then there will always be comfort for every sorrow, whatever the circumstances may be. And I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.”  – Anne Frank

  • Bundle up and go for a walk or a hike.  Breathe in the fresh air and admire the beauty you see around you.
  • Bring a journal with you and take a few minutes to write down your thoughts.  What specifically do you admire and love about the outdoors?  What solace do you find as you immerse yourself in the woods or mountains?  Write down what you are most grateful for as you sit, contemplate, and breathe.
  • Read these five reasons why nature is healing.
