Connect with nature

Technology comes at a price. A price paid heavily by nature. As we keep building and expanding, we forget all about our need for nature and all that it provides. With limited exposure to plants and greenery, it becomes really important to connect with nature. Ancient wisdom considers being in nature a part of man’s daily life and living. Since we cannot be a part of nature at all times, we can atleast try and make a daily connection.

Take your car out and go for a drive with the windows rolled down. Make sure the drive is amidst nature and ensure that incase of an emergency the car is well fitted with a towbar. Westcott Towbars  has a great range of Bullbars, Roobars, Canopies and Trays, Cargo Barriers, Front Protection Bars, Ladder Racks, Roof Racks, Tradesman Racks, Spotlights and Towbars throughout the Perth region.

Go for a daily run or walk in the park or just take the kids for an hour of play at the park. Walk barefoot in the grass or sit with your feet touching the grass. Research has shown that stress around the eyes reduces if you gaze long enough at green plants. So go ahead and feast your eyes and senses for more more clarity and better vision. Put your hand on the trunk of a tree and see how steady your breath becomes in no time. Continue for 10 minutes and you will find that both mind and body reach a point of calm acceptance.

Bring in nature indoors. Add some lovely green plants and the air in the house starts to clean up naturally. Turning up he soil to loosen it, is a wonderful way to touch and feel the earth. Make it a weekly ritual and see the difference in your life. As you connect with the earth, you send happy vibrations out and more of the same starts to come back to you in other ways. Tend to a veggie patch or an herb garden, play in the sand or make mud pies with little ones. Just as sinking your bare feet into the earth will ground you, so will digging into it with your hands.
