Most of us have very busy lives.
We go from home – to the office or our chosen place of work – to carpooling our kids – to activities. Our lives are busy! We rush through each task we have to check off on our daily “To Do List” ever reaching for the end of the day when we can relax, regroup and recover from the hectic pace to yet fortify ourselves for another day in the rat race of life. This creates one big vicious cycle of commotion if you ask me. It is no wonder that we hurry, hurry, hurry wherever we go. If we stop and smell the roses along the way we get off task.
Immersing yourself in nature every single day makes you want to smell the roses if you will. You see there is healing found in nature that is restorative and rejuvenating to the body, mind and spirit. Spending time in nature is soothing, refreshing and inspiring and has the ability to clear our minds, providing a new and positive outlook on life. There are many gardens and parks around the country (especially in San Francisco, CA).
Simply by infusing bits of nature in our workspace can give us this same soothing, refreshing and inspiring outlook on our work life. Basic tools for thriving in the workplace I say.
Whether your workspace is in the form of an office cubicle, the corner office or a large spacious environment. Here are some easy ways to bring nature into your space:
