EVEN GREY DAYS HAVE BEAUTY
I am an artist and every time I feel bad or feel stuck I go to an adventure to the forest or take a walk by the lake. I love to watch the sunset, starry skies or even the rainy clouds. Sometimes I relate rainy days with depressive thoughts, or maybe that is something we are raised up to believe. In reality rainy days can be enjoyed, just think about these points:
The fresh smell of rain...
The soothing sound of rain...
The funny feeling when small raindrops tickle your face...
The bright rainbow after rain has fallen...
The nature gets greener after rain...
They say "some people dance in the rain, others just get wet". I think everyone can learn how to dance in the rain. Even literally.
YOU ARE SURE OF A BIG SURPRISE
Do you enjoy going to the woods? To a forest somewhere near? I do this often. Sometimes I hug trees just to feel the connection to nature. Some old trees are actually really nice to hug. A hug is seen good for our health, it releases stress and may even protect you from getting sick. (See here) Hugging a tree is almost like hugging a real person. Try it yourself! Be sure to think about the age of the three, what it might have experienced in the life it has lived and listen to the wind blowing in the prunes. Lean into the tree with all your weight and breath in. And this does not cost you anything!
It has also been proven that hugging trees really has almost the same health benefits, but it also has the plants healthy vibrations. (See here)
In the woods you can find peaceful silence, with a twist of natures sounds. Listen. Take a deep breath, the air is fresh. You can exercise in the forests in many different ways. But the best exercise is actually to walk or run in the forests. There are roots, which make it a challenge that is good for your brain, and a soft ground, which is healthy for your feet.
In the forests you can also find a lot of things. Some find their peace there :D ! But you can for example pick berries and mushrooms there. You can see some amazing and rare wild animals there too.
Have you ever been to a land where nature is untouched? You should!
The nature which is fully natural is the most powerful and makes you wonder about life, I think it has a special affect on us.
HAVE YOU EVER BEEN TO THE MOUNTAINS?
My first time to the mountains was actually this year. The experience amazed me. I can not even describe how much it affected me. I was so tired after walking all the day up and down the route, but it brought me so much joy. Huge mountains makes people feel small and unimportant, it is a great place to go for meditation or to get over someone. And climbing on the top of a mountain makes you feel grateful to be alive.
