Spending time in nature can be very therapeutic. If you're like me and live in a city, it can sometimes seem challenging to find ways to spend time in nature. However, it's often all around us (or a short walk or drive away) and by simply practicing being mindful - looking up, down, and all around - we can enjoy some of nature's health benefits! Living in New England at this time of year provides an added benefit to being outside - the changing leaves are beautiful!
Here are some photos from a recent 'urban nature walk' where I practiced being mindful and curious about my surroundings. If you're not able to get outside, try taking some slow, relaxing, deep breaths while looking at these photos. Or listen to some gentle nature sounds. Breathe. Relax.
