The Sweet Sounds of Nature
Let us get back to grounding. One way to help "ground" one's self is to make a connection with nature. Hug a tree (my favorite!), or take a short walk in a park. Especially in times of transition, spending time in nature can be truly wonderful for our well being; it is healing for both body and mind. For me, camping helps me to feel grounded. I love lying in my tent before going to sleep and listening to the sweet sounds of nature. Pure and simple.
Camping is also a great way for families to reconnect. Given the emergence of the techno era, I believe we have become more isolated and disconnected as a society. Camping translates to less computer time and more time in the great outdoors. Even a weekend camping trip can be a rejuvenating experience in my opinion. My one big tip for a pleasurable camping experience is bringing good padding to sleep on. I use a Thermorest, and highly recommend them! Happy camping!
