Day 27 - Getting Out into Nature - 31 Days of Keeping Your Head Above Water


I think it is important for all of us to get out into nature and experience the refreshment that can come from it.   God made a beautiful world ... a place for us to enjoy.  When we feel like we're drowning, we often feel like we don't have time to get outside.

But ... I'm not a nature girl, you might say.  Getting out into nature doesn't necessarily mean that you need to go hike out into the wilderness.  You can get out into nature by sitting on your porch and listening to the birds singing.   You can visit a park close by and just sit on a bench and think while the breeze blows in your face.  Go for a walk around your neighborhood, taking in the summer flowers or the fall leaves.

When we get out into nature a few things happen.  First, we feel the immensity of the universe and by contrast our problems and struggles seem a little smaller.  We also can take time to rest, breath and relax.   We can use it as a time to quiet our souls.   Getting outside is good for your health.  Most of  us in this country are vitamin D deficient.  Just a little time in the sunshine can boost your levels, helping you feel more energized.

Taking time to get out and enjoy nature can help you keep your head above water.
