Nature is our ally whatever our state of mind. It brings us peace and serenity in our moments of sadness. It strengthens our ability to survive with its inexhaustible resources. It keeps us alive, warming and refreshing us at the same time. The sun that illuminates us, the air we breathe, the water that surrounds us and the trees that populate nature, are essential elements to our existence. These are essential elements that we must regain in order to limit the damage caused by the stress of living in the city. Here are some tips that can help us reconnect with nature.
If you have time to run on a mat in a gym, you can also find time to get out of the car and go for a run in the forest or a nearby park. Ideally, you could even organise a short family hike on a Sunday to take full advantage of the idyllic scenery that nature has to offer.
You don’t have to travel to the other side of the world to get away from it all. No matter which city you live in, there are plenty of nearby destinations to choose from to get away for a weekend. From sleeping in a gîte in the mountains, to meeting fishermen by the river, to sharing the daily life of the villagers next door, there are plenty of options for a breath of fresh air with your partner or family.
Take advantage of the sunshine to eat outside with your friends or family. Instead of having a barbecue in your garden on Sunday, go for a picnic with family and friends in a park near your house. Besides, children love to play outdoors and even pets can enjoy it.
Camping has several advantages. It’s a great way to spend a holiday in the great outdoors without breaking the bank. It’s also an excellent way to reconnect with nature, to contemplate its wonders, to photograph animals and even to run alongside them. Discover camping in our ecolodge.
If you can’t get out of the house, gardening is another way to become one with nature. And you don’t always need a large plot of land to garden. You can create a small vegetable garden and grow your own vegetables and fruit in your garden. If you have space, plant your pathways with shrubs and flowers. And if you live in a flat, you still have the option of choosing a planter in which you can put flowers or herbs for the kitchen.
Animals feel better in the wild. From time to time, take your dog or cat for a walk and enjoy a relaxing moment together in the open air. During a walk, you can meet new people, both for yourself and your pet.
