Go outside, even if it’s just for a few minutes. A quick break outside in the fresh air is a positive step for a happy life!
Most of the time I do this on a beautiful, blue sky type of day. I know there are aspects of a rainy or snowy day that are wonderful, but today I’m talking about going outside on warm, sunny days.
The vastness of a big blue sky is a perspective adjustment. A few white, fluffy clouds add dimension to the view. This adds new meaning to the thought of infinity. It’s time to just breathe.
Now, look down. Pretty green grass grows in many shades of green. You can see it reaching up to the sky. You can feel it absorb the warmth of the sunlight.
Now, look around. Prairie grass blows in the breeze. Bees buzz all over the lavender. A potted plant in the shade happily flowers. These plants exist outside in nature every day as we hurriedly pass by, often barely offering a glance.
The sky, grass, and other plants come together to make a healthy ecosystem. We all benefit from the gentle contributions from each member. Take time to go outside, stop whatever you’re doing, and enjoy them all! It doesn’t take that much time, just a few minutes – and a few deep breaths.
Here is another appreciation of plants in our world.
