The author of this book discovered that time in nature truly helped her to feel less stressed and more centered. She subsequently wrote this beautifully illustrated book that lists 365 ways to connect with nature that will help readers to feel calmer and more mindful. The book is divided into sections including Nocturnal Nature, In the Forest, The Life Aquatic, etc.
An example of a daily suggestion:
The philosopher Henry David Thoreau believed that,
An early morning walk is a blessing for the whole day.
Go out in the early morning for a run or a brisk walk to see the sunrise…Come home refreshed and ready for the rest of the day.
I have found that I do feel better when I spend time outside, whether at my local park or botanical garden. This book will encourage me to keep those connections going and may do the same for you.
Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this book in exchange for an honest review.
Some more from the publisher:
Ginger is one of the best spices to give you a boost on a cold day. Place 3/4 inch (2 cm) sliced and peeled ginger root in a mug of boiling water. Add honey and some fresh lemon juice. Let it brew for 5 to 10 minutes and then enjoy the warming infusion.
Something to do at least once in your life is to sleep in a hammock outside on a summer night, or just take a short evening nap before you head to bed. Enjoy the soothing sounds of the wind rustling the leaves of the trees and let yourself drift off into beautiful dreams.
