“Keep close to Nature’s heart…and break clear away, once in a while, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.” —John Muir
Ahhh, breathe in that fresh, cold air. There’s nothing like being in the sunshine, bundled up, in winter. If you can’t climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods, what can you do?
Step onto your back porch and take some deep breaths. Take the dog for a long walk and be present with him…tell him what a good boy he is. Hike in the woods with your sig other or friend and enjoy the silence together…have that heart-to-heart you’ve been meaning to. Go for an exhilarating drive in the country with the windows down, music up, and feel eighteen again.
There’s always something you can do to unburden yourself, clear the cobwebs from your mind, get the blood flowing in your body, and feel alive deep in your soul. Consider this your home-grown prescription for whatever’s ailing you—right now.
