Everytime I take the time to be in nature I feel like my senses have been reset.  Even during

the coldest of days its important for me to step outside.  Harvard has done studies as have others and the benefits are many.  Just a few: (1) reduction of stress levels, (2) improves physical health, (3) helps with mental health and so much more.  While we work with our bodies for optimum health, a key factor is getting outdoors, connecting with nature, and just enjoying the beauty that surrounds us.  Grab a friend and go for a walk.  Even better, practice qigong or yoga.  On wintry days, find a window so you can gaze outside as you practice.
