Natural Medicine … The Big Blue Sky

Big Blue Sky In KansasAm spending as much time outside today as I can because it’s the most beautiful fall day.  So far I’ve done these things outside (mostly on my deck):

  • had coffee while writing my “to do” list and jotting down ideas for my business
  • recorded my dreams in my dream journal
  • walked Toby on the levee
  • ate lunch
  • did some writing
  • took pictures in my yard (including the big blue sky to the right)
  • watched the birds and butterflies
  • made phone calls
  • just sat and surveyed my little corner of the world

After a bit more lounging, I’m going to splice wires and hook speakers up to my “new” audio component set purchased at Goodwill a few days ago for $9.00.  I need to make sure it works and get it set up in my loft bedroom where I exercise, watch movies, and sit in peace.    Adding electrical outlets on my porch and deck was one of the smartest decisions I made when getting my house rewired.  I’ll be able to plug in the audio set and work outside soaking up this glorious fall energy. 

Why am I telling you all of this?  Good question.  Spending time in nature is some of the best medicine we all have access to, but we don’t often take the medicine because we’re busy, we forget how healing nature is, or we don’t  know that nature can be so enjoyable and healing.  I highly recommend that you start taking more of the natural medicine available when spending time in nature.

    Some of my best vacation days off work have involved sitting on my deck or by my tiny fish pond simply observing the sky, my goldfish, and insects going about their jobs. I even find weeding our gardens to be therapeutic.

    You are a kindres spirit Monica. I just couldn’t get enough of being outside today! The sun is going down….so now I will stay inside for a bit – but I plan to go out again and wink at the stars.

    Great post and I completely agree with what you say! Spending time in nature is extremely important to us all. I even wrote a blog about it my self on my website SMART Living at: Please check it out if you have time. I’m looking forward to checking back and reading your posts….

    I recently attended a “Science Cafe” seminar in my hometown that featured a university prof talking about the atoms in our body. He mentioned that we all contain lots (trillions) of atoms from famous historical persons and made the comment that, as we continually exchange atoms with each other and the world around us, that alone should give us reason to protect our environment. Whatever we put into our environment eventually ends back up in us. I hope that gave the attendees reason to pause and think…

    So true Monica – revere the environment. Take care of it and it will take care of you.
