A return to nature
Yesterday I finally had a chance to get back into nature. I went to Griffith park here in Los Angeles, and did a long hike. I noticed quickly that my cell phone barely gets a signal there, and I must say there is something about being away from the city and and the electro magnetic fields that helps me regroup and reconnect to myself.
I couldn’t help but ask myself why it had been a full two weeks since I had been in nature. Of course the obvious answer is that I am too busy, but I realize that without including nature in my self care regimen, my productivity declines greatly. After a little fresh air and sunshine, I felt totally different. As a licensed Acupuncturist, I need to walk my talk and stay health and centered, and time in nature is a must. No matter what we do for work, getting outside even if the weather is chilly will benefit our heart mind and soul.
