MAP CONTENT - Connect With Nature

Leave the indoors, go outdoors, and amazing things will happen to your mind and body 

Connect: 
To join, link, or fasten together; unite or bind
Plug into, meld with, get into 

Why? 

HEALTH 

It has health benefits 
Nature is all about soaking up the sunshine, breathing in fresh air, and walking around - all things that benefit your health.

PEACE 

It’s peaceful and feels good 
Stepping into nature allows you to temporarily ‘turn off’ the noise, lights, cars, TVs, phones, and other distractions that cause stress and drain you of energy - providing the peaceful environment you need in order to properly ‘recharge’ your mind and body.

AWESOMENESS 

It’s awesome! 
Nature is pure and simple awesomeness - from observing and interacting with animals, to the smell of a pine forest, to the sound of ocean waves... it all has a way of deeply affecting you like nothing else can!

When/How? 

In 1 Minute or Less 

  • Open your blinds and windows - let the fresh air and sunshine in 

In 1 Hour or Less 

  • Observe the landscape, birds, blowing leaves, clouds, or critters (if you have them) from your office window, porch, or balcony 
  • Walk around your neighborhood or a local park - enjoy a picnic 
  • Drive out in the country with the windows down 
  • Sit underneath the stars (with binoculars), or next to a river, lake or ocean and just soak in the experience! 

In 1 Day or Less 

  • Visit a state or national park and do some hiking, boating, kayaking, fishing, or general exploring 
  • Go to a zoo, aquarium, or botanical garden - stop and pay attention 

In 1 Weekend or Less

How To Really Connect 

  • Think about it - How amazing and beautiful it is, how it benefits you, how it makes you feel, how fun it is 
  • Use your senses - Pay attention to the colors/movement, smell flowers/grass, feel breeze/sun, listen to birds, waves, winds
