Three Ways to Fall in Love With Nature

fall leaves1

Today, our culture is immersed in technology. Almost every home and family has at least one technological device. It could be a cell phone, computer, tablet, television, etc. Add in busy day to day lives and varying schedules, almost all days are spent in doors. Most of us have fallen out of love or have never fallen in love with nature. Taking a step away from technology and into nature is good for everyone’s health. It is time to fall in love with nature for health and relaxation from the busy chaotic world of today.

Educate or Re-educate Yourself

To fall back in love with nature we need to explore nature a bit before jumping right into it. Some of the technology within our lives is helpful for this part. Discover the beauty of nature and all that it entails. This can be as simple as watching nature shows through a cable provider or searching through images on the internet. Services from companies like http://www.direct2tv.com/ have all the nature channels and internet access to start getting yourself interested in what nature has to offer. This should ignite something within you to go explore and see the colors, smells, and sites of the outside world.

Start Slowly

The next step is to start slowly. There is no need to go on some big nature adventure. Take in the simple beauty just outside your front door. Start taking strolls through your neighborhood or through a nearby park. For those that live near a beach, stroll along the water and take in the sounds of the ocean. Add these strolls into your daily routine. A nice walk outside every day is relaxing and diminishes stress. The natural world can become quite calming. Hikes are another way to get in touch with nature. Hiking spots are great for those who live in large cities with little natural life around. Taking in the natural elements around you at least once a week will create a large improvement on your health.

Vacation

The next time a family vacation is on the agenda, plan to go on one that involves the outdoors. Visit one of the many camp grounds throughout the U.S. Your next vacation could be to some of the many natural attractions around the country. Some of these places include The Grand Canyon, Niagara Falls, Yellowstone National Park, Devils Tower, Monument Valley, and so many more. With the constant hustle and bustle of today, a family vacation in the natural world is just the ticket. Trips in nature cause less stress and more relaxation all around. Trips through the natural attractions allow for you to appreciate it more. This is the final way to fall in love with the outdoors. Research all the natural wonders of the U.S. and plan future family trips to visit these places.

Nature and all its beauty should be explored and appreciated especially in today’s chaotic world. It is import for us to immerse ourselves in nature often. A stroll in the natural world will lessen stress and create an overall calm over those who enjoy it. Educate yourself, start slowly, and then vacation in nature to fall in love with it and all it has to offer.

  1. I am guilty. I am an indoor girl. I love waterfalls, animals, and water related nature things. I have always been that way. I am perfectly happy zoning out in a good book or yoga. My kids think I am strange that I don’t like going outside much.

  2. We love mother nature and boy are we glad we get to enjoy it. Vacationing to the mountains, camping and doing some outdoor stuff really make you appreciate things. So we have to really respect it and take care of it. 🙂

  3. We love being outdoors! There is always something new to discover when it comes to nature. Our boys are still quite young however our eldest is really becoming more interested in nature. I am looking forward to hiking, camping, and many adventures as they grow.

  4. I always look for every available chance to get out in nature and enjoy myself. It’s not always pretty, but I have fun!

  5. I think those are all awesome ideas. We spend a lot of time hiking and nature really is amazing.

  6. I absolutely love nature (except in the summer where it can get 100*+ here in Texas), especially in the Fall. In the Fall, I love taking walks in the park, in the neighborhood, and just enjoying the cool crisp air as the beautiful leaves fall off the trees. This may seem weird, but I spend more time outside in the Fall than any other season!

    1. Same here. Texas has very hot summer. But I love going to lakes and have fun. We go early and come back home in the afternoon when the sun’s heat is on its peak.
