Take a Walk in the Woods
If you’re looking for something a little more relaxed, simply taking a stroll through the trees will work wonders for your health and mindset. The Japanese tradition of forest bathing holds that merely being in the forest is a form of preventive health care, so relax with a gentle stroll.
Eat Your Meals in Nature
Instead of eating your lunch in front of your computer screen, try taking it outside if it’s a nice day. You can also eat breakfast on your porch or dinner on an outdoor patio.
Walk or Bike to Work
If you don’t live too far from your office, try walking or biking to work. It will require extra time, but you can shave it off later by skipping the gym after getting in a workout by commuting. It’ll also save you money on gas or public transit costs. So why not check out a new part of your home that you’ve ever seen on foot or cycle?
Find an Outdoor Hobby
If you still don’t know how to spend more time in nature in 2022, try taking up a new hobby. Any activity or hobby you love will jump higher on your to-do list. For example, try an outdoor sport such as beach volleyball, kayaking, nature photography, or bird watching. Any hobby that gets you outside is sure to get your body moving.
Spend a Day on the Water
Spending time in nature isn’t just about connecting with the forest. Try going to a lake, the beach, or even a pond to pass a day on the water. Your options are endless — you can boat, fish, swim, kayak, canoe, or wade in the water and enjoy the time with your family and friends.
Start a Garden
Everyone has to eat, and no matter where you purchase your fruits and vegetables, they always start in a garden. So why not grow them yourself and know precisely your food source? You can choose the types of fruits and vegetables you want to grow, and you’ll have to spend time outside to nurture the seeds to life.
CAPTURE YOUR NATURE MEMORIES WITH A NATURE JOURNAL
It’s fun and uplifting to keep a journal. A journal holds memories in a way that is very personal and often emotional.
“The naturalist wanders with an inquiring eye, pauses, ponders, notes the bloom of a prairie pasqueflower. It is a tradition that goes back to Aristotle and earlier: observing and identifying earth’s myriad life forms and discovering the connections that bind them. For those with such interests, said British naturalist Miriam Rothschild, “life can never be long enough.” — John Hay in The Curious Naturalist
