For me exploring woods or sitting on jetties by the ocean are my two places for nature and personal exploration. Today’s post is an insightful essay on the good things that come to us from spending time in nature.

          It’s spring, the cherry blossoms are in bloom, tulips and daffodils sway in the breeze, garden and flower shows draw us within. I think that TreeHugger’s idea of adopting “hanami,” the Japanese tradition of flower viewing is just what we need. Enjoy this lovely essay.

“Spending time in nature regularly is not a panacea for mental health but it’s an essential component of health and psychological resilience. Nature helps us withstand and recover from life’s challenges. Even city dwellers can find nearby nature — a garden, local park or trail — to give their overworked brains a break.”
