“Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.” – John Muir
We spend too much time indoors, a place we were never intended to dwell for long. Certainly we require shelter, but there are benefits to be gained from spending time outside, such as: feeling connected to nature, stress reduction, and Vitamin D exposure. Nature has such a profound impact on our well being that some doctors are even prescribing nature as a way to treat depression and anxiety.
When we step into a dense forest, watch a sunrise over a river, or feel dirt in our hands something amazing happens. We step away from the intensity of our everyday lives and begin to slow down. We witness seasons, tiny miracles spread out before us and we know intuitively that we are part of something so much bigger than ourselves.
