The Nature Connection—Get Calm & Relaxed Observing Nature
Observing nature is a wonderful way to quiet your mind, calm anxieties, and feel peaceful.
As you go through your day, notice nature. Listen to the sound of birds chirping. Smell the flowers. Touch a soft rose petal. Enjoy the blue sky, colourful sunset, or take a deep breath of fresh air as you watch the sunrise. Pay attention to your surroundings and observe the details.
As you watch these videos, take a few deep breaths and relax. Allow yourself to let go of any tension you’re feeling and simply be in the moment.
