Losing touch with nature

Everywhere I look I see people that have lost touch with nature. In this modern world, people spend too much time indoors watching t.v. or playing on the internet. This has caused more stress in people's lives. Nature has a calming effect on the mind and shouldn't be forsaken.

This doesn't mean you have to live in the wilderness and give up your modern conveniences.

It only takes a few minutes to gaze at a sunrise or sunset and it will have a calming effect on the mind. Or gaze at the stars or the moon. Clear your mind of clutter for the few minutes you take to enjoy nature's beauty. You will be surprised how great you will feel.

If you enjoy gardening, that is another way to get in touch with nature. Or take walks on a regular basis.

And when you are outside remember to respect the land and its creatures.
