The Nature Connection
"Between any two pines is the doorway to a new way of life."
~ John Muir
The great outdoors! Topic of thousands of books, articles, poems, musings, audio recordings and - more recently - at the center of the attention of researchers and scientists who are investigating the benefits nature has on our health & wellbeing.
From shinrin-yoku, or forest bathing, to eco-therapy and biophilic design researchers have confirmed the many healing aspects of our natural environment that unfold their magic when we are outside or even when we bring natural elements inside to our homes and offices. Nature has proven to be a master healer of insomnia, stress, lack of vitality, brain fog, a feeling of being disconnected from our true, authentic self and more serious emotional, mental and physical ailments.
The number of immersive nature retreats is on the rise - opportunities for people to spend a couple of days or weeks at a resort far away from modern civilization, disconnected from the rest of the world, completely immersed in nature. The idea of leaving a stressful life behind us for several days and doing nothing but breathe fresh air, go for long hikes, sit at the beach or just lay down in the grass for a couple of hours and look into a deep blue sky until we are feeling better is quite tempting.
Unfortunately for many of us this will just remain an idea. An elusive concept that’s not going to happen in our life. Because, let’s be honest, who has the time to do that very often? And how many times have you gone out for a quick walk to clear your mind, only to find out that your inner mind chatter and all those unpleasant inner dialogues came along with you, so by the time you arrived back home you felt that you got some exercise but were you more relaxed? No. Happier? Nope.
So how do I tap into the healing power of nature and why are so many experts talking about the fact that our well-being depends on re-connection?
