A winter walk in the forest can definitely soothe the soul!
A familiar walk to a favourite spot to take pause for a moment. A time to reflect, and more importantly, a time to just be still, to breathe in the fresh air and sit in wonder of our beautiful surroundings. Majestic trees, a peaceful flood, and gorgeous rock cliffs that never disappoint.
There are many benefits to deepening our connection with nature; to understanding nature and everything it is made up of. Our forests, rivers, oceans and soils provide us with the food we eat, the air we breathe and the water we drink. A walk in nature has both physical and mental health benefits. It also helps to remind us to be respectful of our environment and encourages us to live a more sustainable life.
So I truly hope you take time each week (maybe a few times) to go for a walk with the purpose to connect with nature. Maybe hug a tree, really feel the awe nature inspires and say thank-you to our beautiful earth for all it gives to us!
