Why Nature and the Outdoors

Being out in nature relaxes the nervous system, our heart rate slows and our muscles relax.  The fresh air can boost our energy levels and awaken our senses and with our senses awakened we can more naturally come into the present moment.  In nature a persons perspective can shift as it can be easier to see things in a different way.  Nature can also act as a metaphor for life and experiences.  By looking outwards at what is around us we can find metaphors to describe what is happening internally without needing to find the words.

I love this read by Melbourne Local Claire Dunn.  It really got me thinking and questioning how I can connect more to my local environment right here in Melbourne.  You can get it here.
