There was once a famous Native American Indian chief name Chief Seattle who once wrote about how sorrowful it was that large America cities lack the beauty and stillness of Nature. He wrote, “There is no quiet place in your cities, no place too hear the leaves of spring or the wind darting over the face of the pond. Like a man who has been dying for many days, a man in the city is numb to the stench.”
I was lucky enough to grow up next to a forest preserve, and there were endless hours of creek diving, fishing, tree climbing, running around, etc. Study after study showed that staying indoors all the time, playing video games, sitting sedentary, hurt a person’s mind and their general enjoyment of life.
Living and wandering in Nature fills one with awe and with amazement that Nature is never busy, everything gets done on its own time, with preciseness and precision. Living in Nature shows that “Man is the only working animal”. Respect Nature and heed its teachings. Nobody who has spent a lot of time in nature emerges with stress and anxiety. Stress and anxiety and depression are not known qualities in the awesome beauty of Nature around us.
