I have been hearing so much about green spaces recently, and how it can be beneficial for our health. A green space can be a forest, field, park, or even a little garden. I believe especially in Winter, it is so important that we get outside, and enjoy the beautiful rays of the sun.
Finally, science is catching up to what I have always believed, which is that humans absolutely need to be around nature for optimal health and well being. Honestly, I really enjoy city life. It is amazing to be close to many things, and the bustle of this particular landscape. The energy is delightful, and I think there is definitely a time to enjoy this atmosphere. Personally though, I feel most at home enjoying the lush environment of the Earth, writing down everything I observe.
For the modern person, there must be a balance here. At times, due to work or school, you may have to be close to or live in a city. In this case, when you do have available time, just try to find a park in the city, or close to it to enjoy green spaces. So many places do a fantastic job of incorporating this as well.
When I was younger, I lived in a more rural area full of woods, streams, ponds, and big trees to climb. I would literally go and explore, and that is when I noticed the beauty and peace that comes from nature. Listening to the singing birds, running after squirrels, and jumping across streams, I really found myself in the revere of the forests. In nature, you are connected to the world like nothing else. It was and will always be the sacred story written in everything.
The balance of the world is very real. This is why it is so important to cherish the land, and respect all beings that inhabit it. Any time of year, it is crucial to find our own green spaces.

One of my absolute favorite wellness and self-improvement books is “Atomic Habits” by James Clear. I personally recommend this book because it details how to create systems in your life that help change your habits to meet your own goals. He reviews ideas from psychology, biology, and neuroscience to create a guide for making good habits inevitable.
Personally, I have enjoyed using this system to really shift my mindset around adding more whole foods to my diet, getting into a healthy morning routine, and exercising more. I do feel better as a result, but I really think that the principles outlined in this book can be applied to many areas of our lives. It really brought to my attention on how small habits really do impact your life, and by building on them, you will have this amazing fundamental unit of your overall system.
