There is no denying it — the outside can be messy. Bugs can be a nuisance, dirt and mud can worm their way into shoes, and, at times, the sun can be an unforgiving ally. But beyond these inconveniences, nature is an uninhibited escape, and, for some, a place for inner discovery.
In a world dominated by the Internet, TV and smart phones that buzz constantly with alerts, it is no wonder that so many people struggle to truly understand what their purpose in life is. Distractions are everywhere, all constantly clawing and begging for attention. When that soft tone buzzes in another alert from the smart phone, it is typically hard to say “no.”
Nature provides an escape from these distractions. There is no wi-fi, no televisions and no deep voices crooning through speakers at a coffee shop. Ready to put this distraction-free environment to your advantage? Try out these nature hacks.
Smart phones have undoubtedly added significant value to our daily lives, but there is something integral that is lost when surrounded by an endless stream of distractions. For a few minutes at least, turn the phone off and try out a nature hack to not only better understand yourself but also your purpose.
