Welcome to the “Nature Connection” edition of “It’s Sun Day: Your Day to Shine”
Today, is Sunday the 4th July 2021.
Your Nature Connection is all about getting outside to explore a natural setting with your own basic sensory awareness & observation skills.
In our technology-driven world, most people are only using a very small portion of their total capacity to sense and perceive what’s happening in their surroundings.
Today we are going to deep dive into eight ways that you can build your connection to nature, afterall spending time in Nature is the best form of therapy we have available to us.
Have fun with this.
Connecting with Nature
To assist you in building a daily ‘Nature Connection’ habit, here are eight simple to introduce activities that will assist you to connect on a mind body, emotional and spiritual level
#1. Feel the earth below your feet
Stand barefoot on grass; feel how solid it feels beneath your feet and focus on your connection to the earth.
#2. Drive the scenic route
Leave a little earlier and take the scenic route. Stop for a second, take a photo. Guaranteed you’ll feel more positive and alive.
#3. Make outdoor dates with friends
Arrange a picnic or outdoor walk rather than sitting in a busy indoor space like a coffee shop.
#4. Eat outdoors
Get your daily quota of vitamin D by eating outside. Look for somewhere green.
#5. Do some cloud watching
Look up in the sky. More than likely there are some clouds. Watch how quickly they change shape and move along. What shapes can you see?
#6. Grow Something
Whether it’s a veggie patch or a few seeds on a window sill, nurturing a plant is one of the best ways to feel connected to nature.
#7. Hug a Tree
This is one of my favourite things to do. The native Americans would lean up against a tree before going into battle. The tree energised them. Find the biggest, wisest looking one and wrap your arms around it as far as you can – it’s a truly grounding and energising experience.
#8. Watch a sunrise or sunset
We are gifted at the beginning and end of each day. Unfortunately the majority of us never get to see the sun rise or set. It truly is amazing. It connects you and assists you to know that we are all connected to a greater being and universe.
Now, that is a WRAP for Sun Day the 4th Day of July 2021: Your Day to Shine.
No matter where you live, nature is all around. Take time each day to connect with her and thank her for all that she brings. Look at the intricate designs all around you. Get all of your senses involved in the process.
Breathe it in and watch your energy lift and become filled with Love, Joy and Gratitude.
Always remember that above all else you deserve your love and to be empowered.
Take time to Celebrate You, Today and All Days!
Have an amazing week. Make it Meaningful Memorable and Magical. And always remember “that there is Great Love Here for You.”
With Love and Gratitude
