People travel and wonder at the heights of mountains, at the huge waves of the seas, at the long course of rivers, at the vast compass of the oceans, at the circular motion of the stars, and they pass themselves without even wondering ~ Saint Augustine ~
“Landscapes of great wonder and beauty lie under our feet and all around us. They are discovered in tunnels in the ground, the heart of flowers, the hollows of trees, fresh-water ponds, seaweed jungles between tides, and even drops of water. Life in these hidden worlds is more startling in reality than anything we can imagine. How could this earth of ours, which is only a speck in the heavens, have so much variety of life, so many curious and exciting creatures?” ~ Walt Disney Company ~
We can learn so much about life and each other by studying nature. Sometimes we get too distracted by things that seem more important. We need to slow down and focus on the things that really matter most. We are less stressed when we are in nature as opposed to an urban environment. If you’re feeling down or overwhelmed, go for a walk in the woods, it will boost your mood.
