Suggestion #4 ~ The Healing Powers of Nature
This simple daily practice can truly be the beginning of your new life, in this new year.
Make the effort to return to nature. It's where life resides. It's our home.
4. Commit to going outside and walking in nature every day. Even if it is only for five minutes and you have to force yourself to do it. Build up to ten minutes. 15. 20. Loose yourself in nature. The trees. The animals. The scents. Try and feel yourself in your own body. Pay attention to your feet hitting the ground. The breeze on your face... notice.
Over time, notice the change of seasons.
Spring follows winter. Always.
The days get brighter.
Light follows darkness.
What appeared to be dead brings forth new life. Always.
If you’d like to explore this further, or any other facet of your grief journey, I work with people one-on-one. If you’re in the Rockford, IL area, we can do that in person. If you’re out of the local area, we can Skype or Facetime. If you'd like to work with me, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can schedule a session and discuss cost.
I also want to make sure you aware of my Video Program “Transforming the Way We Do Grief.” The intention I set when I created this 3-part Video Program, is to help you heal ... to help make the unbearable, more bearable. Through this program, I share with you much of what I've learned about healing during my 20+ year journey with grief. To learn more click: "Transforming the Way We Do Grief.”
