Welcome to the DW Healing Arts Be Well series of wellness tips for January 2016. Each day I will highlight a card from my Balance Resource Cards decks. The wellness resources will help you bring balance to your body, mind and spirit if used on a regular basis.
Take a moment right now, and practice today's wellness tip as you read this. Grab your journal, turn off your phone, find a quiet place without interruptions and set a timer for 20 or 30 minutes. This is time you are investing in yourself. You are worth it.
Give yourself permission to balance your life.
May you Be Well! Love, Deanna
Spend time in nature for 20 minutes each day boost vitality of body, mind and spirit. Relax under a shade tree, feed the local birds, canoe on a lake, photograph the landscape, take your pet for a walk or enjoy gardening. Exercise in nature for an added boost to your energy level with activities such as cross country skiing in the winter and swimming in the summer.
If you don't have a place to enjoy nature close by your home, bring nature indoors to elevate your mood and feel a connection to the outdoors. Enjoy the sound of a water fountain or wind chimes. Buy a bouquet of fresh flowers. Purchase music with nature sounds in the background. Open your window for fresh air.
What are your favorite ways to spend time in nature?
