Being outside is one of the greatest and fastest ways for me to get grounded. Stepping outside and feeling life around me immediately brings me into the present moment.
I recently had major hip surgery and I noticed that as the days got closer, I opted for more and more time in nature. My soul knows what she needs to stay calm and connected.
A jaunt through heaven on Earth–the Garden of the Gods–which is nearly in my backyard the day before surgery was just what I needed to move into the weeks ahead of no hiking and finding news ways to get grounded (which I have learned is simply sitting in my garden and observing with all my senses).
Deliciously beautiful isn’t it? And the mutts are kinda cute, too.
