Leave nothing but footprints
Take nothing but pictures
Kill nothing but time....


"Nature holds the key to our aesthetic, intellectual, cognitive and even spiritual satisfaction."
E. O. Wilson

Nature restores mental functioning in the same way that food and water restore our bodies. There is nothing like some time spent in nature to refill your reservoirs. All the pressures of everyday life create stress and frustration, while a walk or run in the forest,  can restore a feeling of well-being and happiness. 

"We often forget that we ARE nature. Nature is not something separate from us. So when we say that we have lost our connection to nature, we have lost our connection to ourselves."
Andy Goldsworthy

Walking in the woods, we are overwhelmed by the beauty surrounding us. We could point out the different trees and wildlife, comment on all the moss on the branches, and listen to the singing of the birds or the babbling brook. There is nothing more perfect than nature to just be yourself and simply enjoy. You can actually feel the stress leaving your body as you breathe in the pungent scent of the forest. Nature never goes out of style.

Find somewhere in your area where you can go to shrug of your workday, you could even take the kids and/or bikes. You could all get some exercise, breathe some fresh air and maybe even talk to each other. What a mood elevator at the end of a long hard day. Try it out.

There is no wi-fi in the forest but we promise you'll find a better connection.
