peaceful, like the countryside or for a walk in the woods? Or else sitting at the bank of a
lake..It’s beautiful, isn’t it? Rather than remaining blissfully unaware of the beautiful
nature around you, take time to appreciate the things mother nature has provided.
Let us face the facts. We live in a world where we spend most of our time working or in
the digital plane, browsing the internet, chatting, watching clips and movies, and so on.
The older we get, it becomes increasingly rare for everyone to have the time to plan out

research had shown that the blood flows much more into the anterior cingulate instead, which is
connected to empathy and compassion.
Spending time in nature is important in some many ways. Now that I have reminded you about
some of them, make a plan to dedicate some time to spend it outdoors, basking in the sunlight,
natural beauties, and the health effects of being around plants for extended periods. Let nature
