In a world with advanced and constantly evolving technology, we sometimes get so caught up in the digital world and scarcely remember the natural one. When we are so wrapped up in our smart phones and tablets we lose time being out in a natural habitat with fresh air and the sweet fragrance of the flowers and trees. There are a few ways for us to get back in touch with Mother Nature and experience something more than our comfy couch and smart phones. The appreciation for nature will also be good for your health.
1. Re-educate Yourself
Try to re-educate yourself on the beauty of nature. This could be as simple as finding a couple nature shows through your cable provider. Start to see the beauty in nature and its animals again. There are so many networks that still show the mysterious wonders of the outdoors. Whether it is online or on the television, here is the start of you falling back in love with nature. Taking in the wonderful sights of the natural world again through your television or computer will ignite the flame to venture away from your technology and back into the blue, green, and brown.
2. Start Slow
There is no need to go on some big nature adventure. Find the beauty in the area around you. Start taking strolls through your neighborhood or through parks near your home. If you live near a beach stroll through the sand and take in the sounds of the sea. Getting out into the fresh air and just taking a light walk will diminish stress and create a sense of calm over you. Hikes are also a great way to get back in touch with nature. If you happen to live in a large city where there are not a whole lot of natural things around, search places in your area to go hike. When you get out of your house a few times a week and take in the natural world, it will be a large improvement on your health.

Go to one of the many incredible camp grounds throughout the U.S. Your next vacation could be to some of the many natural attractions around the country.

In 2014, life is a constant hustle and bustle, a vacation should be relaxing. There is no other way to relax and indulge like taking in natural wonders.
