There is a better view from the top of the mountain.
I feel stress and tiredness in my body and it’s a real indicator to me to take time out. It’s time to get out into nature I thought to myself. I find myself wondering where am I at? have I got tangled up in the messiness of life? Is it time to take ‘time out?’ to go into nature to untangle the clutter that’s gathered in my mind.
This is a question I have been asked on numerous occasions about attending a Nature Camp. What If It Rains?
We seem to automatically worry about our comforts when going into unfamiliar territory. We fear stepping out of our comfort zone, we like reassurance that our comforts are being met and that we can feel at home.
So here I am rocking up to a Wicklow Wilderness destination on a Friday evening in late October. I am staying in a Tipi in a forest on an all-inclusive weekend organised by Nature Benefits in the hopes of reconnecting with nature and disconnecting from technology.
I think to myself, as I step out of my car into the autumn evening chill to open the forest gate, I must be mad, I’m going to freeze.
Nature Benefits held its Nature Walk recently in Donadea Forest in County Kildare.
It was a lovely Autumn morning. The weather was dry and warm, with a peaceful stillness in the air. The trees were turning colours of Autumn copper and gold. It was the perfect day for a nature walk.
‘It’s Doing My Head In’
I was asked to write about the health benefits of nature and I have to say I struggled at first in putting it together. Not because I didn’t know the health benefits but because I felt I had to write about facts on research studies. This just didn’t feel right to me. .
Get together and Go outside !
