As techies, we’re inclined to stay cooped up inside with our electronics, and our cozy homes. Cyborgs exist with and without tech but they should also strive to find the Balance of living with Nature. Humans in many fields have attempted to recognize the importance that nature, the outdoors and other living things have in our lives. Some say Nature Changes our Brain for the better, others claim that Nature Impacts Our Well-being, and yet others would argue that Nature is Essential!
Make time this spring and summer to do some activities outdoors. Instead of going to the gym, maybe you walk outside on the bike trails. Maybe instead of having tea at a restaurant for brunch, you invite everyone over for some patio time. There are a lot of budget-friendly and Free Outdoor Activities that can keep you involved with nature. It will be easy to look up local events like outdoor concerts, fairs and farmer’s markets that can keep you active and getting your nature fill.
I plan on taking my own advice. My yard needs a great deal of work so I’m going to put some time in making it look spectacular this summer. Maybe you can garden your whole yard like I plan to. Maybe you can only have a hanging plant in your apartment. Maybe you can only go to the park downtown. No matter what style your life with nature takes, make sure it is Unique to You! Do so Mindfully. Spontaneously and make sure to Bring Friends!
