Take time out of your day to just stop and enjoy
the beauty of the nature that is around you. Even if you live in a busy city, there are always trees,
parks, flowers, birds ... just stop for a moment to gaze at the beautiful sky,
an amazing sunset .......
Once a week, take a nature break - walk in a place
that is close to nature, where maybe you can sit on the grass, lean with your
back to a tree, just to stop and stare, open your eyes to the beauty you can
find round you, open your ears to bird song. If you are lucky enough to be close to the ocean, drink in
the ozone air, sit quietly and relax to the sound of the waves. If you need an excuse, take the dog for
a walk. If you don't have a dog,
offer to take a friend's dog.
