Nature Walks and Imagery
We know the feeling when we sit in the beach and see the sun set or sit on the brink of
grand canyon looking at the view. We are so much into appreciating the beauty and the awe
of the god's creation, we forget about our other problems. It is like meditation. We are
transported to a different world. This is a great way to get rid of stress from our
system. Take frequent nature walks. Watch the magnificent sunset. Listen to good music and
let it transport you to distant realms. Stop and smell the rose and marvel at its beauty.
All of these that pleases the senses calms the mind as well. So give yourself time-and
opportunity-to indulge your senses. Let your little pleasures bring relief from big
Nature is one of the best soothers of stress. Taking a quiet walk in a park or watching
a beautiful sunset can do wonders. Even reminiscing about such a scene from your past, or
simply imagining one, allows your stress level to drop. Picture a trip to a palm-studded
beach in Hawaii, whether you've been there or not. Or imagine a lush waterfall in Vanuatu.
Or a trip to Malabar Coast!
