Reconnecting to Nature
Friday, September 19th, 2008

My Beautiful Tall Trees

I am just coming back from a gorgeous jog at my favorite county park with beautiful tall trees and a five-mile path around a serene lake.  I try to do this jog once a month and coordinate it with some other commitments.

What I like about this activity is that it is not so often that I feel delinquent in my many responsibilities.  I am able to relish in the monthly opportunity of being in nature and away from my daily routine.  It rejuvenates and centers me even more that I allow myself the space and time to do this guilt-free.

When I started doing this I was amazed at how many people I would see at random times of the day doing the same thing.  Yet, I think there should be more of us doing this… reconnecting with nature.

In order to center ourselves and synchronize the many roles we play as parent, spouse, sibling, care-giver, and the list goes on, it is important and life-giving to find a place in nature that allows our senses to be heightened and our minds to clear.

I invite you to try a brief or long, leisure or energetic walk, jog or bike ride.  Discover your favorite park or nature excursion for this month wherever you live or maybe try a new location.  Carve out time before or after work or on your lunch hours.  Perhaps you start with this as a one-time thing and see where it takes you…

Check out the websites below to help you locate something that appeals to you or just type in your state or county along with “parks and recreation” and discover a new place for yourself.
