Take a breather. There is something about nature. It’s purity & raw form can be therapeutic, acting as medicine for the soul. Clear your mind of distractions, stress, and frustration. Not just freeing, also vital to your overall health & wellbeing.
Setting aside time to reconnect with nature. This can be a simple hike in the woods, bicycle ride or evening stroll. I recently embarked on a weekend kayaking trip. While paddling I heard chirping birds, saw the moving water, and felt a slight breeze. In that moment, I only focused on the environment around me. I was indeed at peace. Ideally spending time outside would be a daily recurrence. However, this day in age it seems like a past thought. I find it helpful to schedule in time for these little outings. I recommend at least 4 days a week to help build this habit into a routine. Ensure that you don’t take more than two days off in a row. One day is ok. This will ensure that you don’t loose focus.
Keeping a journal nearby. While spending time in nature I personally found it therapeutic to just jot down some thoughts, goals, & dreams in a notebook. You will be amazed at how clear your thoughts become after spending sometime in the wild. The following passage I wrote in my own journal on a beautiful evening out on the water.
My thoughts while in nature :
Take time to reflect. Look into the water, reflecting is the sky. Quite elegantly above us, cumulus clouds pass through the open air. Seen far, lush green growth upon the land. This land continuously evolving. This is nature, raw & beautiful. The warm rays of the sun above slowly diminish, fading away below the the skyline. Another night falls, until morning light is again revealed.
Purpose: This time in nature is meant to purify your mind & set aside all modern day distractions. Slow down & take moment to reflect. Find peace & acknowledge the delicate yet intricate state of nature. Hopefully this inspires you to get back in touch with what is important in life. Stay humble

Why Im ditching social media & replacing it with email/blog
Technology can be both useful and degrading depending on how you use it. I believe we are at a tipping point. Social media is rather rapidly destroying genuine human interactions and privacy by replacing it with some fake facade.
A platform built for communication (like Facebook) yet also designed to sell you and all the information you give it. You are being targeted as the consumer. Thats no good.
Overwhelmed by ads and opinions, telling you what to think. Break away!
Lets ditch unhealthy habits and replace them with meaningful ones.
Think about all that you could accomplish if you just eliminate the distractions in life and focus on what really matters.
Switching to email/blog is the simplest way for me to stay connected and spend time on what's important.
If you are looking to live a more fulfilling, less distracted life try quitting social media.
Try the 30 day social media detox & see what you learn from it.
