52 Tiny Changes
You've done it before. Tried to change your whole life in 30
days. Only to fizzle out at day 10 because it take too much time.
Join me in making a small change each week and by the end of the
year you will have made 52 improvements to your life!
with 52 changes in the subject line. Or come here each week for
a new change and some steps to help you along the way.
Tiny Change #20: Enjoy nature- take a
hike, sit on the beach, dance in the rain
Nature has a way of renewing us. I know when
I have been locked up with the computer and haven't seen the
light of day for awhile I feel "off". I feel disconnected
with the world. Nature shows us the big picture of the world.
It's hard to be self-centered while you look at the stars or
look out at the vast ocean.
Today, I am taking the kids on a fall scavenger
hunt. We are going to the nature trails with a list of things
to find like mushrooms, a red leaf, a spider, etc. They had
such a good time with this activities last year, that they begged
me to take them this year too. My spirits are lifted just thinking
about going outside.
Try to schedule at least half hour a week of
outside time. It could be split up into little 5 minute outdoor
Some outdoor ideas:
~Go to a park
~Hike some trails
~Visit a zoo
~Go for a bike ride
~Feed the ducks
~Observe a spider web
~Catch fireflies then let them go
~Name your flower
~Ski, sled, or snowball fight
~Look at animal tracks
~Hunt for 4 leaf clovers
~Play Frisbee on the beach
~Go horseback riding
~Look for shells or fossils
~Build a sand castle
~Make a container garden
Nature can nurture you indoors too with water
fountains, flowers, plants and pets. This week find a way to
let nature nurture you.
